This chapter looks at ecological restoration efforts that include an educational purpose, otherwise known as “restoration-based education.” Restoration-based education occurs over time and consists of social and ecological components. It has the potential to create learning landscapes that enhance biodiversity and ecosystem services while offering learners, such as children and adults, opportunities to reverse negative environmental trends through their collective hands-on/minds-on efforts. The chapter considers some of the contexts where restoration-based education takes place, along with its educational and ecological impacts. It also examines the importance of partnerships, inclusivity, cultural relevance, and social justice in the restoration education process.

Keywords:   ecological restoration, biodiversity, ecosystem services, restoration-based education, partnerships, inclusivity, cultural relevance, social justice
