Let the beauty we love, be what we do. There are hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground.      ~Rumi

AER's Mission

Artists for Environmental Restoration (AER) inspires dialogue to raise awareness of the power and path to environmental restoration amid the destructive and disastrous effects of climate change and global warming.

Initiatives include applied research, innovative interactive adult and youth workshops, public presentations on the arts and the science of climate change, professionally facilitated community and scientific discussions on current trends in environmental restoration, web links and print literature for expanded understanding of the challenge and opportunities for positive change.

AER looks to the wisdom and imagination of each individual to inspire ideas for environmental restoration action.
