									Nature's Second Chance
Author: Steven Apfelbaum

Renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold once wrote, "A thing is right when it tends to preserve the
integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it does otherwise."

Few have taken Leopold's vision more to heart than Steven I. Apfelbaum, who has, over the last thirty
years, transformed his eighty-acre Stone Prairie Farm in Wisconsin into a biologically diverse ecosystem
of prairie, wetland, spring-fed brook, and savanna. In healing his land, Apfelbaum demonstrates how
humans might play a starring role in healing the planet.
Author Bio
Steven Apfelbaum
Steven I. Apfelbaum is founder, president, and senior ecologist of the firm Applied Ecological Services,
known for its international science-based ecological design and restoration work. He lives in Juda,
Wisconsin, on Stone Prairie Farm.

"In his account, both personal and visionary, of the restoration of his eighty-acre farm, Steven Apfelbaum
makes a passionate plea for the respect and conservation of our ecosystems."

"Apfelbaum's book is as rich in farming adventure, environmental ideas, and profound insights as a
restored prairie is rich in life and beauty."

"Living with the land, and not just simply on it, has never been more imperative-and Steven Apfelbaum is
the perfect guide to that new symbiosis. Nature's Second Chance is part memoir, part road map for a
more sustainable future."
