This map meets the Fire Recovery and Community Science Program goal of mapping restoration priority areas.

The observations made by community scientists were processed into populations and combined with other data in an Environmental Evaluation Modeling System (EEMS) to highlight the areas on the landscape most in need of restoration efforts.

To open EEMS Explorer, open this map, then click on the 4 box icon in the "Restoration Priority Sites" layer in the layers tab.

The highest level criteria for this are:
  • Invasive Management Priority
  • Erosion Management Priority
  • Low Regenerative Potential
To see the paper and technical appendix (with logic models) for this project, refer to the homepage linked from the beginning of this description and/or contact the authors..

Here is the EEMSOnlline version of this map, which allows for the changing of parameters, but does not have overlays of other layers.
