Restore the Earth Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. We’ve unlocked the business case for landscape scale restoration and we’re using it to restore 1 million acres in the Mississippi River Basin, North America’s Amazon.

We go beyond talk to action; since 2008 we’ve tested and refined every element of our approach with real projects on the ground.
