This project was implemented as post-fire recovery of stream habitat. This project was funded by the Watershed Restoration Initiative. Project partners include a Private landowner, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Trout Unlimited, Sageland Collaborative, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
We built beaver dam analogs (BDAs) using untreated wood posts (2-4" diameter) pounded into the stream-bed at the height of the ordinary high water mark and then filled in by volunteers using on-site materials including sustainably harvested willow branches, mud, rocks, and clumps of sod.
