Native seeds are a crucial component in terrestrial restoration, and their reliable supply is necessary to ensure that the restoration of degraded ecosystems can be performed at scale. The Bureau of Land Management, in collaboration with the Society of Ecological Restoration’s International Network for Seed-based Restoration, The Nature Conservancy, and Holden Films, produced a series of educational documentaries that explore each step of the native seed supply chain in one of the largest and most sophisticated native seed markets in the world, the Western United States. Episodes of the nine-part series have been released weekly throughout the summer and can be viewed on ser-insr.org/native-seed-film. In this webinar, representatives from BLM, SER-INSR, TNC, and Holden Films discuss the production of the video series from both a scientific and cinematographic perspective and share stories of this incredible journey. The panel discussion is followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
