Green Cities Toolbox – restoration monitoring

These tools are part of a resource collection community-based stewardship of urban forested parklands and natural areas. Included here are protocols and instructions for implementing short- and long-term monitoring of restoration sites.

Regional Standardized Monitoring Protocols

In order to understand the success, value, and effectiveness or our restoration activities, the Green Cities have implemented a set of Standardized Monitoring Protocols. These protocols lay out data collection procedures that can be replicated over time to measure change at restoration sites. Contact your partnership coordinator to learn more about how you can get involved! You can also email to learn about training and volunteer opportunities.
