    Restoring weed-dominated habitats is a complex process, particularly in public landscapes with diverse constituencies. Come learn how Larry Weaner Landscape Associates negotiated these challenges in their restoration plan for a 100-acre grassland at Croton Point Park in New York. Located atop a capped landfill, this site provides vital habitat for imperiled bird species. Jenna Webster and her team sought stakeholder input, utilized scientific research, and synthesized crowd-sourced ecological data to create a thoughtful restoration plan. This case study gives us valuable lessons for land restoration on sites both large and small, particularly for protecting specialized habitat for native wildlife.
