The history of ecological restoration

May 5, 2022

Researcher and author Laura J. Martin joins the Landscape to talk about the history of ecological restoration in the United States and how it led to today’s booming off-site environmental mitigation and carbon offset industries. Martin has a new book coming out May 17 on the subject called “Wild by Design: The Rise of Ecological Restoration”, which covers the early conservation movement in the United States from a slightly different angle than our listeners may be used to hearing.
