Synopsis of Topic
We will introduce concepts and approaches for monitoring stream restoration.
Why We're Covering It
Stream restoration is common but monitoring their beneifts is rare. Therefore, monitoring a rare restoration approach (i.e. working with beaver) is essentail for us to learn how to use this approach in the future. Multiple levels of detail should be considered when balancing trade-offs of a given budget with the potentail to learn from these restoration "experiments."
This topics helps us with the following learning outcomes for the workshop:
- A working understanding of considerations in restoration designs using beaver;
- An introduction of how to develop dynamic designs utilizing beaver; and
- How to manage public expectations regarding potential restoration responses involving beaver.
