Project Goals and Objectives

Project goals include water quality improvements, reducing erosion, and reconnecting floodplain and plant vegetation to improve bird habitat along the riparian corridor. Funding for this project was provided by the Tracy Aviary Conservation Fund and the Utah Non-point Source Program. Project partners include 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.
