Rocky Mountain Chapter Virtual Beaver Webinar

Tuesday, April 20, 2021 (7:55 AM - 12:00 PM) (MDT)


This workshop will focus on the importance of beavers in the Rocky Mountain Region and how their ecology 
can guide wetland and riparian restoration practices. We have organized a group of experts to share
information on beaver biology, ecology, and restoration. 

Topics include wetland and riparian restoration from the landscape scale to individual reaches and ponds. 
Flow devices, non-lethal management devices, and BDAs (Beaver Dam Analog) will be illustrated 
and discussed. 

A panel discussion will follow immediately to give attendees opportunity to ask questions and discuss 
concepts and ideas in more detail.
