Course Description and Credit Information

This course discusses how the beaver makes for a great restoration tool. It also helps shed light on the common questions involving it: where could beaver work? Where are they a problem? What do we do where beavers alone are not enough?

It also talks about the state of the streams, the ecosystems of beaver, when beaver becomes a nuisance, the exploitation of beavers and how they can help restore incised streams, among other topics. This webinar was presented for the National Riparian Service Team.
