Description
Stream restoration does not have to be an expensive design aspect when working with the natural wildlife to help. This course discusses how the beaver makes for a great restoration tool. It also helps shed light on the common questions involving it: where could beavers work? Where are they a problem? What do we do where beavers alone are not enough? It also talks about the state of the streams, the ecosystems of beaver, when beaver becomes a nuisance, the exploitation of beavers and how they can help restore incised streams, among other topics.

This webinar was presented for the National Riparian Service Team.
