Join the Swaner Preserve and Wild Utah Project in building several Beaver Dam Analogs along a stream on the Swaner Preserve! The BDAs will help improve water and habitat quality on the Preserve. This is a great way to get onto areas of the Preserve that are not open to the public. Volunteers should be able to walk over uneven ground, get in and out of a stream, spend the day outdoors, bend over for extended periods, work outdoors in a variety of conditions, and comply with the safety guidelines. Be prepared to get your hands dirty and have a lasting impact on the Preserve for years to come. Work will take place on Willow Creek on the Swaner Preserve. Parking and meeting location will be provided in a follow-up email prior to the event. Waders and Muck Boots will be available to borrow, or bring your own if there are some you prefer. Beaver dam analogs are a stream restoration structure. These human-made beaver dams provide ecological benefits of their natural counterparts by increasing habitat, lowering water temperature, recharging groundwater, and more!
