Joe will host a webinar on "Cheap and Cheerful Stream & Riparian Restoration - with Beaver?" on Jul 25, 2013 2:00 PM MDT. To register, visit:https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3177144753149151744
This webinar is targeted at members of the National Riparian Service Team
. The target audience is anyone interested in the conservation and restoration of riparian systems and the role that beaver can play in this management. The first hour of this webinar will include a presentation by Joe Wheaton from Utah State University on techniques and research surrounding partnering with beaver in restoration design. There will be a 30 minute question and answer session after the presentation. The meeting is being organized by Jeremy Christensen of Grand Canyon Trust
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
If you can't make the webinar, a recording of the meeting will be posted later at http://beaver.joewheaton.org
Joe will give a general talk to the public on the basics on this unique animal. The talk will cover beaver impacts on their environment, and research on beaver-assisted habitat restoration. See here for more information.
Beaver – Nuisance or Restoration Partner?
Wednesday, May 29, 6:00PM
RSVP requested, but not required. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 435-649-1767.
On February 20th, Joe will deliver the Wildland Resources seminar
. He will give a talk on 'Cheap and Cheerful Stream Restoration...Employing Rodents?', where he will focus on work he, Nick Bouwes, Michael Pollock, Chris Jordan, Steve Bennett and others have been pushing on restoring streams with low-cost, process-based restoration strategies for restoring streams. In particular, he will focus on their work in Bridge Creek where beaver have been the main agent of change and dynamism.
and his lab hosted Joe for their seminar series in October to give a talk on 'Cheap and Cheerful Stream Restoration and Monitoring'. Special thanks to Andrew and his lab (particularly Sharon Bywater-Reyes
) for making it such an enjoyable trip and showing off some of the local field sites on the Clarks Fork and Bitterroot Rivers.
