ES 481 Spring Class Projects (2009)


ES481: Landscape Reconstruction - Lessons in Applied Ethnoecological Research students presented the results of their Spring 2009 class projects on Monday 6 April 2009 in the Geography Department board room. The event was organized by instructor Brenda Beckwith and Resource Centre lead Ken Josephson.

Using a "sand box", at, the students collected information and mapped dozens of sites, all revolving around themes of sustainability and restoration. The Community Mapping Collaboratory assisted the Dr. Beckwith and her students with technical help, cartographic guidance and by hosting the sand box. The results were fantastic! We hope to have the new map sites added to the UVic Green Map as soon as possible.
