June 2022 Webcast | Passing the (Drip) Torch: A Look Back with Dave Borneman and Bob Grese

Today’s ecological restorationists may believe that things have always been the way they are now, with wide acceptance of practices like stewardship workdays, prescribed fire, or dabbing herbicide on cut stumps, but it hasn’t always been so. Join us for reflections on the past 30 years of ecological restoration through the eyes of two recently retired, long-time practitioners who were also instrumental in the formation of The Stewardship Network.

Bob Grese retired as the Director of the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum after 34 years at the University of Michigan. Dave Borneman retired in February, 2022 after 28 years as the Natural Area Preservation Manager for the City of Ann Arbor. Bob and Dave helped launch a series of “Stewardship Field Days” back in the mid-1990s as a way to share ideas and experiences with fellow restorationists and that effort eventually led to the creation of TSN! Join us for an hour of reminiscing, story-telling, and maybe even gazing into a crystal ball to look into the future of ecological restoration.
