    The Reintegration Project Tour (Video)

    In early October 2018, Wilson Alvarez took me on a tour of his work at Horn Farm Center for Agriculture Education in York County, Pennsylvania. On that land, Wilson works to restore the damaged ecosystem by mimicking the disturbances created by beavers, wolves, humans, and the proboscideans: elephants, mammoths, and mastodons.

    All of this is part of a larger effort he calls The Reintegration Project which aims to embed human beings back in the land through the act of restoration. Wilson does this by creating and sharing the tools, techniques, skills, and community necessary to empower current and future generations to take up this task and create a more beautiful world in harmony with nature.
