Hello, I’m Megan Andre, Executive Director with AWES.
Joining AWES just last summer, I’ve been around for about one year. It’s been a whirlwind coming up to speed with quite a few large projects in flight. Navigating this transition however, left planting season 2021 to fall into familiar habits. For me, that means riparian restoration planting. This style of planting has similarities to AWES signature Eco-Buffers, including increasing biodiversity by planting native tree and shrub at a high density. However, the structure and preparation of the linear Eco-Buffer are lost, and so are the trees… at least this is what we are hearing.
