What

Ecological restoration is a positive activity, not only for wetlands, but for the human spirit. Wetlands are great candidates for restoration, because they respond so quickly. Unfortunately, many of our wetlands have been invaded by alien plant species, like the Russian olive tree, reed canary grass, quack grass and yellow flag iris. Many restoration projects start with controlling or eliminating these invasive species.

La restauration écologique est une activité positive, non seulement pour les zones humides, mais pour l’esprit humain. Les zones humides sont des excellents candidats pour la restauration, parce qu’ils répondent si rapidement. Malheureusement, beaucoup de nos zones humides ont été envahis par des espèces de plantes exotiques, comme l’Olivier de Bohême, l’alpiste roseau, le chiendent et de l’iris des marais. De nombreux projets de restauration commencent avec le contrôle ou l’élimination de ces espèces envahissantes.
