Wetland restoration gives us opportunities to respond to climate change impacts and, at the same time, becomes more difficult within a chaotic climate both current and unfolding. How can we navigate these dilemmas? What are our goals for success in a damaged landscape, and should we change our metrics for defining success? Learn about the collaborative work Alice Thompson and partners do on the North Branch of the Pike River in Mount Pleasant (Racine County), WI, which provides numerous opportunities to consider these issues. If you missed Alice giving it at the 2021 Wetland Science Conference last February, be sure to tune in this time!
