Project Goals and Objectives

This project was implemented for post-fire recovery of stream habitat. This project was funded by the Water Restoration Initiative. Project partners include the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Trout Unlimited, 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.
