Artificial Beaver Dams – A Visual Tour of Triple Creek
Triple Creek Restoration on Myers Creek, near Chesaw, Washington.
The video producers report, “Mimicking beaver dams, we installed vertical wood posts as a foundation and then weaved together dogwood, willow, and maple to create artificial (analog) beaver dams. The purpose was to help raise an eroded stream bed and reconnect it to its ancient floodplain. This has worked.”
These ideas would also work on many Texas ranches, where water shortages are a perennial problem.
