Putting Beavers to Work for Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Symposium

Thursday, December 7, 2017

Hosted by the Miistakis Institute and Cows & Fish. Beavers keep water on the landscape, leading to landscape stability and resiliency which benefits ecosystems, land owners and land managers. In parts of Canada, beavers are becoming increasingly valued for their role in watershed health including, improved water storage, stream temperature moderation, reduced stream velocities, and habitat creation. The “Putting Beavers to Work for Watershed Resiliency and Restoration” collaborative has been exploring the role that beavers can play in watershed restoration in Alberta. There are a variety of groups who are doing important work to advance the use of beavers to realize watershed health. These efforts will be highlighted and celebrated at the ‘Putting Beavers to Work for Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Symposium’ in an effort to pass on knowledge of lessons learned and new research to those working to see beavers and humans mutually benefit from coexistence.
