Vesper Meadow: Reconnecting People, Place, and Native Plants

Vesper Meadow: Reconnecting People, Place, and Native Plants

Learn about community-based strategies, beaver-based solutions, and native food plants utilized at the Vesper Meadow Restoration Preserve and how they can be applied to lands across the region. A local movement for native habitat restoration has started in Southwest Oregon, led by a new wave of conservation organizations, forward-thinking landowners, and Tribal partnerships. Now, after 200 years of land use mis-management, this work is critical to address the widespread impacts of climate changes on our shared landscape, natural resources, and water supply. Jeanine Moy will discuss ongoing projects with the Southwest Oregon Indigenous Gardens Network, local endangered species habitat restoration and monitoring, and examples of local edible and medicinal native plants that anyone can grow in their yard. Founder and Director of the Vesper Meadow Education Program, Jeanine Moy draws on a diverse background as a naturalist, educator, creative, activist, and backcountry adventurer. She has devoted the last two decades to the study of natural ecosystems and serving as an educator. She graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Applied Ecology, and from Southern Oregon University with a M.S. in Environmental Education. Her range of experiences include managing an agroforestry research and demonstration site in upstate New York, conducting plant field studies in the greater Yellowstone region, guiding rock climbing in Colorado, and teaching outdoor science to youth in Oregon.
