Late last year, City of Seattle plant ecologist Michael Yadrick launched treehugger podcast. He says, “restoration promises a brighter future for human livelihoods and health as well as a just transition in a warming world” and wants his podcast to reflect the diversity of restoration practices worldwide. The intention behind the show is to educate about the foundations of restoration ecology, make restoration relevant and accessible to the general public, create a forum for discussion about current topics in restoration while also providing information to young and new practitioners to help navigate their new study and practice. Episode topics have included microbiome rewilding, social dimension of urban nature, biocrust ecology, forest bathing and coral reef restoration. Listen and subscribe to track the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration too. One can find the podcast at and on major podcast portals.
The Resonant Restoration Podcast is dedicated to topics revolving around the world of ecological restoration. It ranges from discussion format to interviews and ties in project specifics. Topics for future episodes include semaphore grass mitigation, beaver dam analogs, and coastal grasslands. The goal is to create more dialogue in the restoration community and in communities at large.

The show is created by Sean Rowe and Kyle Sipes out of Humboldt County, California. They are both actively engaged in the field of applied restoration. The first releases will occur in late February and more information can be found at
