Forest and grassland sites are scored on criteria such as plant community composition, plant community structure, moisture retention, soil erosion and bare ground, weed cover and distribution, and browse species and utilization. Site visits are conducted annually during peak growing season. Protocols are based on those developed by Alberta Environment and Parks, but have been modified for park management applications.
