THE
RESTORATION
HAS BEGUN

Restoring 1M acres in the heart of America | Creating millions of dollars of value

Reducing America’s carbon footprint | Generating highest quality offsets for business

Engaging employees, local & national volunteers | Protecting vulnerable communities

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.
