Learning Center

At Restoration Resources education is more than something to put on your resume. It is the foundation of every great act the world has seen. Learning is not a finite process – it is (or should be) a lifelong undertaking. There is always something new to discover about the world around us.

Whether you’re learning about Nature for the first time or sharing your knowledge with future generations, we hope you’ll find useful information in our Learning Center.


To help make learning about Nature more interesting and fun, we have created Kit and Burt. These two characters are dedicated to helping us identify and develop CITIZEN SCIENTISTS all around the world. You will see them throughout the Learning Center section, guiding the way to help you become a Citizen Scientist.

Below you can learn more about the real-life Kit and Burt.
