Restoration

Service:  Restore healthy vegetation composition and function to degraded ecosystems using the best available science and adaptive management.

The Technique:  Ecological restoration is a process that facilitates recovery of
ecosystems that have been degraded by human activity.  Successful ecological
restoration relies on thorough scientific understanding of ecosystem structure and
function, practical and cost-effective planning, efficient implementation, and
adaptive management that monitors success and adjusts management accordingly.

Our Contribution:  We bring to bear extensive expertise concerning diverse
ecosystems.  We have developed numerous successful solutions that restore or
simulate natural processes, including hand-pulling invasive grasses, transplanting
seedlings, planting trees, reintroducing butterfly larvae, re-establishing well-
managed grazing, and enhancing suitable microclimate conditions.

Representative Projects: CLFR, San Mateo Thornmint, Edgewood
