How to do it...

Restoring the native landscape takes time and patience.
Below are some resources that will help you make informed decisions during this process.

The importance of EcoRestore Portal...

Restoration of arid and semi arid areas can be extremely difficult due to the low amounts and high variability of precipitation [1]. Guides that help practitioners at any level of expertise or land type and size can provide useful direction for successful strategies. Many local restoration guides are available to provide general direction for ecological restoration efforts in the arid Southwestern U.S [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]. However, these guides generally do not provide an easy to use platform on which to investigate potential species based on site characteristics and management goals. This restoration portal is largely designed to address this management need. Based on user entered site characteristics and management goals, a list of candidate restoration species is developed and can be further refined for use based on availability and funding.
