Course Description

Ecological restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed. The specifics of this process vary based on the site’s history and condition, as well as the goals of those facilitating the restoration.

Students in this course will develop experiential knowledge of ecological restoration through field visits to several local sites, learning from the expertise of their managers. Emphasis will be placed on understanding how restoration practitioners assess individual sites, balance stakeholder interests, and promote adaptive management to meet restoration goals.

Meets with ENVIR ST 900.
