Introduction to UW-REN Capstone Members

this blog and this year's restoration effort at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park is facilitated by the UW-Restoration Ecology Network Capstone group. This group is composed of six Restoration Ecology students at the University of Washington, Seattle campus.
  1. Chris Cowell: His interests include horticulture, restoration ecology, and conservation. 
  2. Noel Daniel: Her interests include native and non-native plant propagation, and habitat restoration.
  3. Tae Kim's interests include forestry development, and policy and economics of resource management.
  4. Hong Nguyen: Her interests include rare flora conservation, mangrove restoraton, and vegetative propagation.
  5. Talya ten Brink: Her interests include wetlands, coastal systems, and the design of public spaces.
  6. Robyn Turner: Her interests include native plants, community led projects, agriculture and restoration ecology.
Our diverse skills and experiences aid the project. We look forward to accomplishing the proposed project from our clients of City of Shoreline. However, we can't accomplish the restoration without your volunteer help, and the help of other volunteers!
