The Social Dimensions of Ecological Restoration: Social Values and Restoration
This talk considers the social values dimension of restoration ecology. All restoration projects assume and are motivated by a basic set of public/social values. Making these values explicit can go a long way in building public support for restoration projects. Answering the public's often asked question why restore? demands a consideration of values. Particular attention will be paid to the values underlying Butte’s Restore Our Creek vision and project.
