This 2-day course is a hands-on, field based course focused on in-the-field implementation of "low tech" stream restoration, and spend most of our time in the field building and maintaining Beaver Dam Analogs (BDAs) and Post-Assisted Log-Structures (PALS). This course is designed for individuals/groups that are responsible for implementing the restoration designs of more experienced practitioners. We will focus on interpreting and understanding restoration design through applied understanding of basic low tech principles and focus on logistic considerations and construction methods of a variety of restoration structures. This workshop focuses on two low tech stream restoration structures, BDAs and PALS.
