Restoration is the complex set of efforts to reverse or mitigate effects of human activity on the landscape. Restoration of California grasslands is now under way at many sites. This chapter discusses grassland restoration efforts, paying special attention to desired species attention and effects of past human activities. It first discusses the constraints on restoration efforts, such as invasive non-native species, land use, viral diseases, road construction, fire, and grazing. The chapter then examines the goals, implementation, and management plan for restoration of California grasslands.
