“Maximizing Habitat Values in Urban Landscapes”

Monday, April 11 @ 7:30 pm

Guest Speaker: Pat Reynolds, River Partners Native Seed and Plant Program Director

Landscaping with native species and incorporation of habitat enhancement features within urban areas is a significant and underutilized conservation action that can effectively increase habitat values in the built environment. If designed properly, urban gardens can provide important habitat for beneficial insects including pollinators, improve water infiltration and retention, reduce irrigation requirements, help to combat climate change, and create resilient landscapes.

Pat Reynolds is a restoration ecologist with more than 30 years of professional experience in the design, implementation and monitoring of restoration projects including the effective use of native seed. He is the General Manager of River Partners’ Heritage Growers. Pat also leads a community-based habitat enhancement project in south Davis where he collaborates with his neighbors to plant native oaks, grasses and wildflowers.
