Ecologist Dale Leadbeater brings years of experience when she speaks of best practices for ecological restoration. Our tools include prescribed burns, invasive plant species control, and plantings that range from wildflowers, sedges and grasses to shrubs and trees. We target historical ecosystems as goals for restoration.
But the key is "sustainability". All too often, restoration projects struggle and fail due to an inadequate understanding of the ecology of soil. How do we account for its role?
