In partnership with Utah Water Watch, and with a grant from the USU Extension, we recently launched a citizen science mobile app for iOS devices to allow volunteer scientists to track and record their observations on beaver dam building activity. If you'd like to help improve BRAT
and help UDWR better manage beavers, take part in monitoring beaver using our new Beaver Monitoring App

is a researcher in the ET-AL, who's ongoing research on the decline of the white bark pine was recently featured in a cover article
of the Huffington Post. The article is titled 'In The American West, A Battle Unfolds Over Bugs, Climate Change And The Fate Of An Iconic Species'.
