Pioneers of Ecological Restoration: The People and Legacy of the University of Wisconsin Arboretum


Internationally renowned for its pioneering role in the ecological restoration of tallgrass prairies, savannas, forests, and wetlands, the University of Wisconsin Arboretum contains the world’s oldest and most diverse restored ecological communities.
