LLELA Lecture Series — Using a Drone as a Restoration Tool

Saturday—August 17, 2024 from 9 am to 11 am.

Meet in the Classroom

300 E. Jones St., Lewisville, TX 75057

 

Join Friends of LLELA to learn about LLELA’s new drone program. Purchased by the Friends of LLELA with donations from the 2023 North Texas Giving Day event, LLELA’s drone will enable staff and student researchers to monitor and plan restoration efforts more strategically than ever before.

Drone images overlaid on topographical maps will improve our restoration efforts by mapping vegetation, including identifying invasive plants for removal. Additionally, the drone advances our partnership with the UNT Geography Department to develop a drone certification option for undergraduate students.

Join John South for a fascinating exploration of how this modern technology will aid in a historic restoration.

The entrance fee to LLELA is $5 per vehicle.
