Optimizing coastal restoration in western Lake Erie: integrating science and on-the-ground knowledge to achieve multiple objectives

The coastal region of western Lake Erie is recognized for high biodiversity value, and also supports substantial economic and cultural values. Prior planning has focused on ecological features and threats to these features. We have extended that focus by identifying and integrating aspects of human wellbeing to create a vision for conservation that can meet ecological and socioeconomic goals.
