Ecological restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged or destroyed. Ecosystems are dynamic communities of plants, animals and microorganisms interacting with their physical environment as a functional unit.

The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe Environment Division has designed restoration projects to address the repopulation of Lake Sturgeon (Teiokién:taron) and mussels, and the restoration of traditional subsistence use of the Indian Meadows.
