Regardless of one's viewpoint, the conflict that erupted in the spring of 1996 and became known as the Chicago restoration controversy has left an indelible mark on the region's environmental community and has forever changed the way those involved will think about restoration. Its implications extend far beyond Chicago; since its inception, the controversy has provided a springboard for discussion and debate that has reached national and international audiences. Although the controversy has raised important biological and ecological issues, the pivotal issues have been social ones, exposing questions that are usually ignored or downplayed by researchers and managers dealing with ecological restoration and natural area management. Restoring Nature is an attempt to bring these human dimensions of restoration to the forefiont. In this book, Bruce. Hull and I, along with the contributing authors, hope to capture the stories, the ideas, and_most of all--the lessons from these restoration experiences.
