We are restoring natural areas.Indicators specific to type of restoration activities. Common restoration activities (stream restoration, bioremediation, species re-introduction, evasive species removal) have standard indictors that are measured.
We are improving ecosystem integritySelect indicators that represent key elements of an ecosystem. This could include indicators that relate to ecosystem drivers (like precipitation, snowpack, streamflow, water temperature, water quality, and unexpected weather conditions), natural disturbances, and biodiversity. A number of different frameworks have also been advanced to guide monitoring, for instance, Watershed Report Cards and Bio-inventory Mapping
