Join Dr. Gregory G. McGee of SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry as he discusses the Wildflower Restoration Project, a citizen science initiative to restore New York State's forest understory.


Talk Description:

Across the Northeast, herbaceous understory plant diversity is frequently depleted in secondary, post-agricultural forests, and these understories require active restoration to improve landscape-level forest diversity and build resilience to future change.  Pilot projects have demonstrated the promise of direct seeding and transplants to restore plant diversity across post-agricultural landscapes, and we will discuss possible approaches to understory restoration in the Canal Forest region.


About the Wildflower Restoration Project:

The Wildflower Restoration Project is a citizen science program that engages individuals in a rewarding, hands-on study that aims to restore New York forests to their original health and beauty. Participants “adopt a woodlot” in their local forests where they learn to identify native wildflowers, plant seeds and roots, and gather scientific data. Over time, participants will literally see the fruits of their efforts in the patches of forest they restore.


This webinar is offered as part of the Arbor Day Webinar Series hosted annually by the Canal Forest Restoration Project team at SUNY Oswego's Rice Creek Field Station. Additional details are available at
