There have been a number of good developments on the hedgerow front over the past few weeks!
Most importantly the Midwest-Great Lakes Chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration approved a symposium that I had put together for the 2015 annual chapter meetings. It is titled: Life Along the Edges: A Discussion of the Value of Field Margins, Hedgerows, and Buffers in the Modern Landscape. There is a terrific group of speakers lined up for the afternoon, and I am really looking forward for an opportunity to examine these ideas with such a knowledgeable audience.
