Learning from Restoration by Nate Fuller
SWMLC has been actively restoring natural communities on its preserves for many years and Nate Fuller is excited to share some of their most recent projects and what they are learning from their efforts. From hand-sown lupine at the Chipman Preserve, to stream restorations at Hidden Pond and Black River Preserves, to savanna and fen work at Portman Preserve, restoration can take a lot of different forms. How we judge success can be challenging to define. Regardless of the outcomes, the experiences are always educational and engaging.

He is a graduate of Northland College and Western Michigan University with degrees in biology and geography with an emphasis in environmental and resource analysis.
