Title: Restoring nature: continuing the conversation

Author: Gobster, Paul H.; Hull, R. Bruce;

Date: 2001

Source: Ecological Restoration 19(4):225-226

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: In the course of our lives we are sometimes confronted by events that jolt us out of our everyday experience. These events can be positive-the birth of a child, a move to a new region or country, the rediscovery of a species thought to be lost from an ecosystem. Such events can also be negative-the death of a loved one, a lost political battle, the bulldozing of a favorite natural area. With some distancing and reflection, these events often produce profound insights. Restoring Nature is an attempt to draw value from one such event, the Chicago restoration controversy.
