    Back to Natives Restoration, in a cooperative agreement with the Cleveland National Forest, provides hands on habitat restoration training over the course of a 7 week training program. Each training session focused on specific aspects of the restoration process from tool and trail safety training, to native and non-native plant identification, proper site entry/exit protocol as well as mechanical/physical abatement techniques to reduce soil disturbance and possible weed seed germination. Graduates of this course are certified to lead groups of volunteers in habitat restoration projects. This is a REAL CLASS. Expect weekly quizzes, homework and a final exam!
