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.
