Lauren Burtz's Projects

  • Rebirth of the Upper Filiorum in Rancho Palos Verdes: The effects of disturbances on this historical landscape, and what that means for its restoration

    • January 2011 to May 2011
    Team Members: Lauren Burtz, Catherine Lundberg, Michell Sanchez, Paul Laris

    This study was conducted on the Upper Filiroum region of Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. We were interested in finding which zones of this land were the most degraded due to experiencing compounded disturbance events which include plowing, fire, landslide, and human development. We completed our research by compiling historic photographs from the Palos Verdes Library District as well as data in Arc GIS provided by the Geography Lab at California State University, Long Beach. Based on these findings, we can suggest to the Palos Verdes Penninsula Land Conservancy which areas should be the focus of the restoration plan for the region.
