Project goals include improving habitat for Bonneville cutthroat trout & and encouraging beaver establishment. Funding for this project was provided by the Water Restoration Initiative. Project partners include the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and Sageland collaborative.
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.
