We use a combination of art and science
to set general goals and objectives. The "art" involves building trust and
credibility with private landowners and partners. This is a critical step in achieving
success. The "science" involves using data on habitat degredation, species
use, and habitat assessments to set priorities for restoration.

wetland projects generally involve restoration by ditch plugs. Uplands projects consist of
enhancing/restoring native plant communities by developing and implementing grazing
management plans. Riparian/in-stream restoration is accomplished using natural channel
design and re-vegetation with native plants and implementing grazing management plans.
