Ken Moore is a pioneer in habitat restoration and invasive species control in
California with some 40 years of in the field experience behind him. In 1990 he
founded the Wildlands Restoration Team, a volunteer program which has been widely
recongized for its accomplishments. Ken is also known for his innovative knowledge
of tools and methodologies that enable workers to efficiently control invasive
species on a large scale. He is a key field instructor for the California Invasive
Species Council and a popular speaker at restoration conferences throughout the

Mr. Moore will make a presentation focused on the long term and large scale
management of broom in the East Bay. There will also be a discussion period.
In this era of declining resources, and advancing invasives, it behooves all
wildland/parkland stewards and interested citizens to understand and practice
techniques of control and eradication that are field-tested for efficiency, maximum
utility, and genuine restorative results. Mr. Moore can speak to all of this and
perhaps we can learn how to combat the broom invasion with a well-educated likeminded
cadre of stewards and citizens.
