The Bay Area is graced with many conservation innovations and successes spanning the past century. Let’s look forward by examining and challenging some of our conservation orthodoxies to see how, and if, they still apply. We’ll look at things like vegetation management, park design, water policy, endangered species, demographic shifts, climate change. Let’s explore challenging topics, stretch understanding, and hopefully unveil common approaches to future innovations and successes.
