Reconnect floodplain, raise water table, irrigate browse suppressed vegetation.

No suitable willow on-site. Although we hauled in a significant amount of willow, we used a large amount of lodgepole branches and sapling trunks for weaving. Project paired with ongoing efforts to construct riparian fence to exclude cattle.
