We offer Landscape Restoration Planning and Design, Ecological Restoration and Land Stewardship in eastern Wisconsin. Typical projects include long-term engagements with landowners of 5 to 500 acres, providing assistance in analyzing current ecological conditions, defining desired sustainable goals and designing step-wise and adaptive implementations with measurable outcomes. With a long-term commitment, lands of a range of local ecosystem types and initial conditions are candidates for our hands-on restoration planning and design services.

Can the art be examples of sketching and illustration whose methods educators can learn and use to explain (draw) the structure of a plant or the wings of a bird? …”.
