The TH Interview: Jarid Manos, the Ghetto Plainsman (Part Two)



People call the Texas plains "flyover country." Jarid Manos calls this land a coral reef in a sea of grass. In a region that has been ground under America's boot heel, Manos and his Great Plains Restoration Council have found a rich ecosystem, dangerously close to collapse. Through aggressive conservation, ecosystem rebuilding, and nature education for the youth of inner-cities and Indian reservations, respect is returning to plains. Even the buffalo have returned. ::TreeHugger Radio
