Speaker: Jeff Ravage

Ecology as Technology: Investigations into Myco-restoration Techniques for Forestry

Forest managers are constantly under pressure to remove wood from forests because of the danger it poses as a fuel source for fires. However, the current practices of controlled burning, basic wood chipping, or wholesale removal of the wood from the forest have their own problems. Our March speaker, Jeff Ravage, will talk about his four-year investigation into myco-restoration for forest mitigation practices. The goal of this project is to revolutionize the way forest managers deal with woody debris and provide an opportunity for forest soils to recover by retaining the nutrients naturally locked away in wood.Jeff Ravage is the North Fork Watershed Coordinator for the Coalition for the Upper South Platte and an Adjunct Researcher for Denver Botanic Gardens. Mr. Ravage practices forestry and oversees large forest restoration projects west of Denver. As well as investigating myco-restoration techniques, he is currently helping develop carbon offset protocols for forestry practices and products.
