News & Announcements
relocation of 'nuisance' beaver in the Yakima Watershed in Washington for use as a restoration tool. The article, 'Often Pesky Beavers Put to Work Restoring Streams' was picked up by many news outlets, and resulted in an interesting interview of Mel Babik on NPR's Weekend Edition titled 'Researchers Say Beavers Are More Than Simple Pests'. This is another promising example of getting the word out on beaver as a restoration partner.

Earlier this summer, colleagues Brain Greene from USU Water Watch, Nick Bouwes (Eco Logical Research), Wally MacFarlane (USU ETAL), Martha Jensen (USU ETAL) and Joe all did a field visit up Logan Canyon with KCPW producer Ross Chambless. Ross put together a radio segment based on the visit that aired July 13th, 2014 on 'Beaver Dam Mapping App Now Available for Citizen Scientists' .

BRAT and help UDWR better manage beavers, take part in monitoring beaver using our new Beaver Monitoring App (developed by EcoTech Solutions in Partnership with Utah State University Extension)!
Joe Wheaton and Patrick Belmont (USU) joined a working group of researchers at the USGS's Powell Center in Fort Collins, CO to explore 'Exploiting high resolution topography data for advancing the understanding of mass and energy transfer across landscapes: Opportunities, challenges, and needs'. The group is led by Patrick Belmont and Paola Passalacqua, and will meet three times over the next year to work on a state of the science synthesis and potential edited volume. Thanks to the USGS Powell Center for their support of this important effort.
Joe will give a talk at the Restoring the West conference on October 17th from 2:00 to 2:30 on "Beaver: Restoration liaison between riparian and upland systems".
