Project Goals and Objectives

Improve channel-floodplain connectivity; support beaver translocation; improve riparian and mesic habitats for sage grouse

Structure Construction Elements

In reaches with flow we built BDAs to create deep water habitat to promote successful beaver translocation. In reaches that were dry during implementation we built instream structures of willow, sagebrush and rock to promote channel-floodplain connectivity during spring flows.
