Project Goals and Objectives

This project is part of the Parley's Project, which aims to improve habitat quality for fishes, ungulates, etc., and to create natural fire breaks by increasing water surface area. This project was funded by the Watershed Restoration Initiative. Project partners include the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and Sageland Collaborative.

Structure Construction Elements

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.
