Registration is now open for Spring 2014 ~
The Ecological Restoration Training Cooperative has developed five online courses that each focus on specific aspects of restoration practice.
You'll have the flexibility to participate in these online courses from any location with internet access. For those of you who avoid online courses because they don't seem like a great way to learn - give these a try! We've designed these to be as interactive and as "real world" as possible. That means you'll be able to visit warm, sunny field sites even when it's 40 below. How bad can that be?
