BUILDING BEAVER DAM ANALOGUES MAY 18 IN SHEEPROCKS
Join us on Friday, May 18th to head out to the SheepRock Mountains to help our partners, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and the US Forest Service, build Beaver Dam Analogues (human-made beaver dams) to help repair the degraded stream conditions on Vernon Creek. We will try to build four BDAs in one day, as we use a hydraulic fence post pounder to drive wood posts into the stream channel bottom, and cut branches off of willow trees to weave through the posts to build our make-shift beaver dams.
We will meet at the Wild Utah Project office at 7:30 on May 18th to carpool out together to the Sheeprock Mountains, or meet at the Silver Sage in Vernon at 9:00. Fill out the form below to register for the May 18th Citizen Science field trip, and for more details on the day afield we'll have in store for you.
