Overview

The Ecological Restoration concentration will train you in the principles and practices of ecological restoration and help you develop skills in communication, critical thinking and environmental decision-making.

Ecological restoration refers to the renewal of a degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystem through active human intervention. The Society for Ecological Restoration defines ecological restoration as an “intentional activity that initiates or accelerates the recovery of an ecosystem with respect to its health, integrity and sustainability.” The practice of ecological restoration includes a wide scope of projects including, but not limited to: erosion control, reforestation, removal of non-native species and weeds, revegetation of disturbed areas, daylighting streams, reintroduction of native species, and habitat and range improvement for targeted species.

Environmental Science - Ecological Restoration graduates at Humboldt State University should find work with many of the same employers as students in the Policy option, including state, federal, and local governments, nonprofit environmental protection and advocacy organizations, and private consulting firms, particularly those dealing with environmental impact analysis, wetlands delineation, and of course environmental restoration and remediation projects; or go on to graduate programs in such fields as ecology, soils, watershed management, etc.
