Speaker Lisa Stratton, Ph.D., will present “From Golf Course to Wetland,” a brief (17-minute) film about how the restoration project evolved, followed by a presentation on the project in action — from moving the dirt to building the bridges, planting the plants and documenting the functions for birds and hydrology.

Lisa is the Director of Ecosystem Management for UCSB’s Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration (CCBER). CCBER manages 300 acres of UCSB open space and spearheaded the North Campus Open Space Restoration Project. Lisa received her Ph.D. in Botany and Conservation Biology from University of Hawaii in 1997 and has been working at CCBER since 2005. She is passionate about restoration and integrating that with education and research opportunities at UCSB.
