California State Parks environmental scientist Jodi Isaacs will present an online talk about restoring natural
habitat on April 24.

Celebrate Earth Day with the SLO Botanical Garden. Join California State Parks Environmental Scientist Jodi Isaacs on Saturday, April 24 at 1 p.m. for an online talk about restoring the natural habitat in our local state parks. See how Morro Strand State Beach and Montana de Oro State Park have been transformed by replacing invasive plants with native species. Learn how invasive plants pose a threat to our native habitats on the Central Coast and how native habitat restoration can benefit wildlife and humans, alike.

Isaacs has worked in the natural resource management field for over 30 years and currently works as an environmental scientist for California State Parks in Morro Bay where she dedicates much of her time to habitat conservation and restoration.

Over the years Jodi has worked to restore riparian, grassland, oak woodland, and coastal scrub habitats throughout California. She completed her graduate work in Australia studying bird movements in a fragmented rainforest landscape and has worked studying birds in native and non-native habitats in Maui, Africa, Ecuador, and around California.

There is a suggested donation of $10 public/$5 SLOBG members for tickets. Details are at slobg.org.
