The Ecological Site Restoration Risk Analysis is a planning tool that can be used by developers and land use professionals to predict the restoration potential for a disturbed site. The tool  integrates information from vegetation inventories, ecological site descriptions, and native plant communities to estimate how sensitive a site will be to development and the likelihood that restoration efforts will succeed.

The first section is the user’s guide, and outlines the purpose of ESRRA as well as the tools used to assess restoration risk. The second section is a database consisting of several tables which detail the level of restoration risk for ecological sites and plant communities in the Grassland, Foothills, Parkland and Rocky Mountain natural regions.
