Re-Oaking Silicon Valley
October 4, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: Erica Spotswood. In this report, we investigate how integrating components of oak woodlands into developed landscapes — “re-oaking” — can provide an array of valuable functions for both wildlife and people. Re-oaking can increase the biodiversity and ecological resilience of urban ecosystems, improve critical urban forest functions such as shade and carbon storage, and enhance the capacity of cities to adapt to a changing climate.
