REPORT: January 2, 2018 - San Antonio NPAT Chapter “2018 Kickoff”

SA NPAT Chapter kicked off the new year with their meeting on January 2, 2018!

They welcomed Lee Marlowe, Sustainable Landscape Ecologist, and Justin Krobot, Landscape Superintendent, from the San Antonio River Authority (SARA). Their presentation was a great start, and we appreciate hearing from the San Antonio River Authority and look forward to welcoming them to future meetings and activities. Ms. Marlowe’s and Mr. Krobot’s presentation and discussion with SA NPAT focused on these aspects of the San Antonio River Authority MISSION REACH Ecosystem Restoration Project:

 

 

Beneficial outcomes for grassland birds, Monarchs, and other wildlife;
Challenges & lessons learned as part of the restoration;

Adaptive management strategies;
How the prairie is part of a mosaic of habitats being restored; and
How restoration benefits the urban river ecosystem.
