Beaver Restoration Guidebook v 2.0Leave a Comment
We are pleased to announce that Version 2.0 of The Beaver Restoration Guidebook (BRG) is available for use on the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office website. Version 2.0 of the BRG has been updated to include a new chapter on Urban Beavers authored by Greg Lewallen.
The Urban Beaver Management Chapter discusses strategies and techniques applicable to managing beaver in a broad range of urban settings. It attempts to balance the urban habitat needs of beaver while protecting the property and infrastructure of private and public lands. Two urban beaver case studies and two urban beaver management reports are included in Version 2.0 to provide lessons learned and examples of different techniques applied to urban beaver projects. We hope the information contained in this chapter can be used to facilitate the non-lethal management of urban beaver, help restore degraded urban aquatic habitats using beaver, and to continue the discussion of using beaver-based restoration techniques across varied settings in North America….
The BRG was developed in partnership with U.S. Fish & Wildlife, NOAA, Portland State University, and the U.S. Forest Service with funding from the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative
