Lecture: Wildergarten: A Case Study in Plant Restoration with Mark Van de Pol

Over 25 years Wildergarten has become one of the largest and most successful native plant restorations in the Western United States. What was an impacted forest infested for 200 years with exotic weeds is now home to native grasslands of better than 99% purity with over 370 plant species represented in five habitat types. Our focus is on research and process development to make this kind of achievement affordable on larger scale.
