Nature Based Solutions & Environmental Justice (Online)
February 1, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join the South Wake Conservationists for an online presentation exploring examples of ecological restoration projects in North Carolina and how those projects benefit both wildlife and humans – particularly in our effort to mitigate the impact of climate change. We will also explore the connection between conservation, wildlife and environmental justice.
Our guest speaker is Kris Bass, a Professional Engineer with over 20 years of experience in ecological engineering applications. He is the principal and owner of Kris Bass Engineering (KBE), and a board member with Partners for Environmental Justice (PEJ). KBE specializes in grant funded projects, partnering with environmental non-profits and government groups to complete stream and wetland restoration projects, dam removals and stormwater retrofits. These projects directly benefit wildlife by restoring native ecosystems. KBE is actively involved in projects with The Nature Conservancy, Piedmont Conservation Council, Sound Rivers, and several small towns in NC. Kris’ work with PEJ is focused on advocating for fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people with respect to improving both human and natural communities.
