This resource evaluates the efficacy of wet meadow restoration techniques in supporting the recovery of the unique yet fragile montane ecosystems and ensuring the continuation of their valuable aquatic and terrestrial ecosystem services. The physically-based conceptual groundwater model introduced in this resource informs managers of the possible consequences of certain restoration decisions and allows them to make choices that maximize benefits.

Aim of the resource: 

This resource aims to help managers set realistic objectives for wet meadow restoration programs and guide analysis of site-specific factors which may impact desired outcomes.
