Event Description

One of RBG’s Courses & Workshops

The 8th Patrick Colgan Memorial Lecture.

Although historically separate, fields of western science and traditional knowledge are now often drawn together to better manage and restore ecosystems, and share understandings of nature. Join moderator Dr. Faisal Moola, associate professor, University of Guelph’s Department of Geography, Environment & Geomatics, and Indigenous ecologists as they discuss how studying ecology and restoring nature through traditional and scientific lenses can build bridges and support cultural diversity.
