This study brings together a group of scholars and practitioners to show how midwestern restoration efforts have developed, and where they are headed, through an analysis of six cutting-edge case studies that highlight thirty restoration efforts and research sites from across the region. The contributing authors uncover a vast network of interested citizens and volunteer groups committed to preserving the region’s environment. The book also pinpoints emerging issues of importance in the Midwest, such as climate change and the increase in invasive species it is expected to bring to the region.
