River Cane Restoration
June 22, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for an interactive presentation on river cane! River cane is a bamboo species native to the southeast U.S. and has been a foundational plant for supporting ecological and social systems.
River cane was a major cultural resource for several Native American tribes, used in building, basket-making and ceremonies. It also maintains high-quality habitat for several terrestrial and freshwater animals. Unfortunately, historical changes have reduced river cane to only 2 percent of its original extent.
Learn how researchers from all backgrounds are working to restore river cane and discover how you can get involved. Attendees will also be able to engage in hands-on activities to learn how river cane fieldwork is conducted.
The free workshop will be held in the Gardenside room on June 22 at 10:30 a.m.
