Beaver-related Stream Restoration Projects in Western Rangelands

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

We systematically surveyed federal and state wildlife biologists, hydrological specialists, non-profit organizations, and working groups focused on beaver or wetland restoration in the western U.S. We focused primarily on contacting land managers from states containing some portion of the Great Basin, although many of the projects described in surveys fell outside of this watershed. Some land managers suggested colleagues who might be interested in participating in our study and these individuals were added to our list of contacts. We also performed a literature search using Google Scholar. We included only articles that were focused on primary research performed in the arid or semi-arid western US. We compiled all of the collected information into a geodatabase using ArGIS 10.3.1 (ESRI, Redmond, CA). Although some projects included coordinates for the locations of beaver release, this information was not included in the database and georeferenced points were offset from the precise location of the projects to protect the sites.
