The Restoration Science Center will support a hands-on transdisciplinary restoration program to regain ecological function from degraded systems, restore threatened and endangered species, and rebuild our cultural relationships with the land using adaptive methodology and science.
Our vision is for the RSC to be a global center for restoration science. Our students and scientists will work side-by-side and with research partners and communities to test, develop, and apply novel technologies to restoration projects, while drawing on indigenous knowledge and land stewardship practices.
