Thursday, September 15, 2022 7 PM via ZOOM
Join Putah Creek Council and Dr. Kristen Dybala as she discusses how Point Blue Conservation Science is thinking about Multiple-Benefit Conservation, and how integrating information across multiple dimensions of change can support more inclusive and effective decision-making.
Dr. Kristen Dybala is Principal Ecologist at Point Blue Conservation Science where she leads research to inform conservation strategies with multiple benefits for people, wildlife, and ecosystems. Originally from Houston, Texas, she earned her Ph.D. in Ecology at the University of California–Davis. Her research has included bird population and community responses to habitat restoration in riparian and wetland ecosystems in the Central Valley, including at Putah Creek. She has also worked on developing climate-smart restoration strategies, studied trade-offs between birds and carbon in restoration sites, and is currently developing a framework for projecting the co-benefits and trade-offs of landscape changes in the Delta.
CreekSpeak is Putah Creek Council’s six month speaker series on the nature, history, and culture of the Putah Cache Watershed, and more broadly, the state of California. CreekSpeaks take place on Zoom on the third Thursday of each month from May to November. Register for this event to learn more about her recent research examining syneriges and trade-offs between birds and carbon in riparian restoration sites, and a current project developing a multiple benefits framework for the Delta that includes bird benefits, agricultural livelihoods, water quality, and climate change resilience.
