1. Beaver Ecology & Hydrogeomorphic Feedbacks

Beaver Dam Complex in Bridge Creek

Our aim on Monday is to bring everyone in the workshop up to speed on basic beaver ecology and the array of  fascinating biological and physical feedbacks the activities of dam-building beaver induce. We can not really talk about how to use beaver in restoration and the merits of piggybacking on this ecosystem engineer's handywork as a conservation tool until we all understand some basics about their biology and the environments, which they modify. We will spend the morning lecturing on the topics below (click on each for more info) and the afternoon looking at lots of different dams in the Logan River Watershed.
