Main Report and the
Environmental Restoration Report

The unifying theory of the Nine Mile Run Greenway Project is reclamation as an integrated ecosystem restoration that embraces the complex goal of "nature" in the context of contemporary urban culture. The latest issue of Society for Ecological Restoration  reflects this interdisciplinary complexity, "restoration practices which hold firm to ecological fidelity and embrace social and cultural goals are much more likely to prosper and endure."
