Is “Nature” a real thing, or is it just an idea? When we talk about restoring ecosystems, what are we restoring them to? Or more precisely, when?
This episode is the first part of a conversation between Mendel, Adam, and two of Adam’s mentors, wherein we explore what it means to practice ecological restoration as a form of art.

Two corrections for this episode:
Prototaxites and giant horsetails (Calamites) were extant ~350 million years before the Eocene
It is indeed a telescope, and not binoculars.
