    November 6, 2013 | Planetary Restoration: Is there a roadmap for restoring sustainable ecosystems? Throughout human history, societies have realized that they are critically dependent on the natural world. However, only recently have increasing population and human activities forced society and science to investigate and document the dramatic changes to the environment sustainability incurred by its use of ecosystems. As the impact of human activities has become clear, scientists have developed new technologies and fields of study aimed at relieving or reducing these disturbances. Ecosystems such as streams, rivers, inland and coastal wetlands, grasslands, and forests provide numerous services that fundamentally support human health and well-being. This panel will explore innovative science-based strategies that are socially and culturally acceptable to create, manage, and restore these ecosystems, ensuring that society has access to all these ecosystem services. Featuring panelists: -Mark Paschke, Department of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship, CSU -Chuck Rhoades, U.S. Forest Service -Michael Gooseff, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, CSU -Chris Fisher, Department of Anthropology, CSU Moderated by: -John Calderazzo, Department of English Professor and SoGES Scholar
