I. Abstract

    Federal investments in ecosystem restoration projects protect 
Federal trusts, ensure public health and safety, and preserve and 
enhance essential ecosystem services. These investments also generate 
business activity and create jobs. The Economic Impacts of Ecosystem 
Restoration project aims to increase the availability of information on 
the costs and activities associated with ecosystem restoration, and to 
gauge the economic effects of these investments to local economies. The 
project is comprised of a series of case studies that quantify the 
economic impacts of restoration projects. The case studies include 
examples of collaboratively funded and managed projects to restore a 
wide range of degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems. In addition 
to providing improved information on the economic impacts of 
restoration, these case studies highlight DOI restoration efforts and 
tell personalized stories about each project and the communities that 
are positively affected by restoration activities. Project methods 
include the collection of primary expenditure data and economic input/
output modeling. Results from the first phase of case studies are 
available online at https://www.fort.usgs.gov/economic-impacts-restoration and in a USGS report titled `Estimating the economic 
impacts of ecosystem restoration--methods and case studies'. The report 
provides a detailed description of the methods used to estimate 
economic impacts of case study projects and also provides suggestions, 
lessons learned, and trade-offs between potential analysis methods. 
This second phase of case studies aims to refine the survey methods and 
fill in some data gaps on specific types of restoration activities.
