Restoring at Scale


RES is proud to support the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.


The United Nations has declared that 2021-2030 is the Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

The goals are to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems worldwide. And in doing so, to create a pervasive culture of restoration and stewardship of our lands and waters.

The UN is challenging this generation, our generation – #GenerationRestoration – to take charge of this mission.

RES is proud to share these values and this commitment. We are all Generation Restoration.


What's possible in a decade?


Educating Generation Restoration

To create a culture of restoration, we need to scale up knowledge and enthusiasm around what’s possible.

Our focus area for RES is Educating Generation Restoration.

We’ll share and expand our programs supporting ecological education where it matters most – targeting practicing ecological restoration pros, and those about to enter the field. Because what we can accomplish in the next 10 years together is critically important to the health of our planet.

Watch this space for our progress. Or contact us if you have an idea.

And join the movement by adding your name to the roster of #GenerationRestoration. The UN Decade has countless ways you can learn more and show your support.


Generation Restoration at Riverby Ranch

The birds are voting. Is our Riverby Ranch restoration a success? Master’s student and avian researcher Tessa Boucher is finding out, tallying the changes in birdlife on this 15,000-acre former farm and ranch, which is in the process of a large-scale restoration by RES.

RES supported this research with a grant to the University of North Texas, where Tessa is studying. Supporting students and sharing research results with the industry are part of RES’ DNA, and part of our commitment to the goals of the UN Decade.
