About EcoRestore Utah

Restoration can be challenging. Guides that help practitioners at any level of expertise or land type and size can provide useful direction for successful strategies. Many local restoration guides are available to provide general direction for ecological restoration efforts. We have compiled Utah-relevant restoration resources in a single place to facilitate easy access for stakeholders and restoration practitioners. These informative guides have laid a foundation that we've built this restoration portal upon, which has been designed as an easy to use platform that can address management needs. The accompanying native plant tool provides a list of candidate restoration plant species based on user entered site characteristics and management goals. This portal is a living document and can be further refined for use based on availability and funding.

About Us

Land Acknowledgment

As a land-grant institution, Utah State University campuses and centers reside and operate on the territories of the eight tribes of Utah, who have been living, working, and residing on this land from time immemorial. These tribes are the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Indians, Navajo Nation, Ute Indian Tribe, Northwestern Band of Shoshone, Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah, San Juan Southern Paiute, Skull Valley Band of Goshute, and White Mesa Band of the Ute Mountain Ute. We acknowledge these lands carry the stories of these Nations and their struggles for survival and identity. We recognize Elders past and present as peoples who have cared for, and continue to care for, the land. In offering this land acknowledgment, we affirm Indigenous self-governance history, experiences, and resiliency of the Native people who are still here today.
