Have you seen Borderlands’ latest feature in no less than Scientific American

With interviews from two of Borderlands’ founders — Gary P. Nabhan and Ronald Pulliam, our Executive Director David Seibert, restoration practitioner Zach Yourgules, the National Park Service’s Steve Buckley, USGS’s Laura Norman and Borderlands Earth Care Youth students, Alexis Marie Adams provides a whistle-stop tour of Southern Arizona’s burgeoning restoration economy.

By oscillating between, on one hand, Borderlands mission— restoring physical environments, food chains and reconnecting people to the landscapes they live within — and restoration being carried out on the ground on the other,  Adams’ article eloquently affirms that through dogged determination, a strategic approach, and plentiful collaboration, a restoration economy is being made into a reality in the Arizona/Sonora Borderlands to the benefit of people and nature alike.
