CSEB Research Webinar on February 18, 2024: Seed-based restoration for urban settings on Vancouver Island

Presentation by Kristen Miskelly (MSc), a biologist who specializes in the flora, ecology, and restoration of ecosystems of southern Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands. Kristen owns and operates Satinflower Nurseries, a native plant nursery and consulting business that provides native plants, seeds, biological consulting, and public education/outreach. She provides ecological consultation, project planning, and implementation of various native project plantings and is a sessional lecturer at the University of Victoria in the schools of Ecological Restoration, Biology, and Environmental Studies. 

Reducing barriers to restoration is one of the goals of Satinflower Nurseries. Over the last ten years, the nursery has produced native seeds and worked to encourage their use on southern Vancouver Island, including in urban areas!  We will discuss how native seeds can be used to enhance biodiversity and create drought-tolerant spaces in our neighbourhoods and cities. Kristen will share project examples like greenroof, septic fields, and urban meadows. The talk will also highlight aspects of small-scale native seed production.
