Rangeland health takes multiple ecosystem components into account and reflects overall ecosystem function. 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.

Elk Island National Park monitors primary productivity to determine the health of forest vegetation throughout the park. This measure relies on remotely-sensed multispectral satellite imagery, specifically, the Landsat Shortwave Infrared (SWIR2) and Near Infrared (NIR) bands. Analysis is performed roughly every five years, using images from mid-July. Forest and grassland primary productivity is in the same database.

Elk Island National Park monitors spatial changes to open water features throughout the park. This measure relies on an unsupervised classification of remotely-sensed multispectral satellite imagery (Landsat). Analysis is performed roughly every five years, using images from mid-July.

Elk Island National Park conducts an ungulate aerial surveys of the entire park, to census the elk and moose populations. The surveys are carried out in the late fall or winter annually. Park staff also conducts opportunistic counts of elk and moose over the summer and obtain demographic information during elk handling. Elk and moose population is in the same database as bison populations.

Manganese (CAS 7439-96-5) is a metal that is found naturally in air, water, soil and in living systems. Biologically, manganese (Mn) is an essential mineral and is required for the functioning of a number of enzyme families. Very high levels of exposure can result in a clinical and severely debilitating neurological disease known as manganism.
