Post-fire Remediation and Watershed Defense Webinar

and Maya Elson
Thursday, September 17th 5pm PST
Suggested donation: $20-$200
All proceeds directly benefit our urgent effort to protect threatened waterways
After the recent catastrophic wildfires in California, many people are concerned about sediment erosion and toxic ash moving into critical waterways, harming aquatic ecosystems and polluting drinking water.
A grassroots coalition is forming to install biodegradable and biologically active wattles and other remediation/erosion control measures to protect threatened waterways, and collect valuable scientific data for future efforts.
Through this seminar, Maya Elson will leverage real-world examples, including CoRenewal’s efforts to explore fungal communities within an oil-contaminated region of Ecuador and research into post-fire restoration in California using belowground microorganisms, such as plant-supporting mycorrhizal fungi. In this online seminar, Maya will explore basic fungal biology, as well as cover techniques for mushroom cultivation, biofiltration, and bioremediation with fungi and bacteria.
Your Purchase or Donation helps CoRenewal:
- Research fungal and bacterial communities capable of bio-degrading petroleum and rehabilitating petroleum-contaminated landscapes
- Investigate the use of mycorrhizal fungal spores to promote regeneration in post-fire landscapes
- Research how mycorrhizal fungi can be applied to improve the restoration of degraded and heavy metal contaminated agricultural soils
- Create more educational opportunities and build a network of mutual support for ecological projects
