Proof That Even Cow-Burnt Lands Can Recover

This is an amazing video showing the results of replanting in riparian areas decimated by cows.

With nearly 100,000 trees and shrubs planted over the last few years, I bet you can image the recovery of some of these streams has been dramatic. Before our restoration work, many of these rivers had been stripped bare by cattle, run dry by ground water pumping and dams, or were so polluted that their waters were unfit for wildlife or unsafe for swimming.” -John Horning, WildEarth Guardians
