The proposed project will study government land use policies in the United States to determine whether the science and practice of environmental restoration is fundamentally reshaping overall conservation policy. The role of government in shaping new expectations about conservation efforts is currently little understood. As public expectations for environmental quality increase and as policies become more complex, land managers who understand the trajectory of policy will be better able to meet regulatory requirements and respond to opportunities for restoration funding.
