Massive social-ecological disturbance and disasters have struck the United States in recent years. In 2017 alone, the country dealt with
devastation, destruction, and displacement from three major hurricanes, a nearly unprecedented wildfire season, and senseless acts of
violence and terrorism. The magnitude of these disasters requires appropriate, large-scale coordinated emergency response and recovery efforts. Both research and practice demonstrate that natural resource stewardship activities can play a role in helping communities to recover, heal, and become more resilient.

This webinar presents perspectives from authors in the forthcoming Forest Service General Technical Report Green Readiness, Response, and Recovery: A Collaborative Synthesis. First, Jonathan Halfon will reflect on how coordinated federal long-term recovery is evolving from a natural resource conservation perspective, drawing on examples from recent disasters in New York, the US Virgin Islands, and Hawaii. Then, Traci Sooter and Nancy Chikaraishi will share their experiences in designing community-based memorials in Joplin, MO following the 2011
EF5 tornado. Lindsay Campbell will moderate a discussion about how communities can rebuild and create capacity over time through innovative partnerships centered on community-based stewardship of natural resources.

This webinar is open to all. We are seeking 1.25 CEU with the International Society of Arboriculture. Check our website for updates and to watch recordings of previous webinars.
