Habitat Restoration

In doing research for QuickReads I’ve come across some interesting websites containing science and social studies content. Just early this year I came across this story about habitat restoration and it has stayed with me since then. The Discover magazine article got me thinking about a book we had used for a QuickReads topic called How the Forest Grew. Of course I started to wonder if there are other wonderful books on habitat restoration. Here are a few that I found.
Enjoy!

p.s. A few weeks ago NSTA released their 2009 list of Outstanding Science Trade Books for K-12.
