Restoration Ecology

Across the country, irreplaceable resources are increasingly at risk. Environmental stresses — wind, water, weather — take their toll as do population growth and urban development. Accommodating growth while preserving, restoring, and conserving natural resources is challenging, but vital to individual communities and economic strength as a whole. The Restoration Ecology Team conducts research in watershed management and restoration of compromised ecological systems. Project scope includes development of:

  • Community-based watershed planning and management programs
  • Ecosystem restoration for rivers, wetlands, and coastal environments
  • Remediation methods for abandoned industrial sites or brownfields
  • Practices to prevent and manage pollution caused by stormwater runoff
  • Forest and wildlife habitat regeneration and management emissions
