The ERI is a pioneer in conducting research and disseminating information about restoration treatment outcomes, strategies, and techniques in the Southwest. We seek to provide the best available knowledge about restoration to a wide variety of audiences, from academic researchers to professional land managers to members of the public. Our work focuses on both ecological and sociopolitical issues, and falls into three general categories: 1) research, 2) education, and 3) outreach, conducted through events, publications, and assistance with treatment implementation.
The ERI will serve as an objective leader in primary and secondary ecological and social science, scholarship, information transfer, collaborative efforts, policy analysis, and workforce education to support landscape-scale restoration of forests and woodlands in the West.
