Wetland restoration reestablishes or repairs the hydrology, plants and soils of a former or degradedwetland that has been drained, farmed or otherwise modified since European settlement. The goal is to closely approximate the original wetland's natural condition, resulting in multiple environmental benefits.
Restoration is a process that helps to transform an area that has been impacted by human or natural activity to an area that can sustain native habitats. Restoring an area is a long process that requires an understanding of an area. Learning about the history of an area and its succession through time, will help determine how to restore an area. Success can be determined if the ecosystem can recapture its natural dynamics. It is not possible to recreate ecosystems exactly, as change is a part of nature.
