Partnering with Beaver in Restoration Workshop

Welcome to the Partnering with Beaver in Restoration Workshop  website. These pages are also intended as a general resource on beaver restoration and conservation.

Enrolled and Past Participants:

This website is the primary hub of resources for the Partnering with Beaver in Restoration workshops. By the end of the workshops, all workshop materials will be posted here for you to refer to after the course.

Prospective Participants:

We have no public beaver workshops currently scheduled. In the past, we have taught various flavors of the workshop ranging from 1-3 days in duration. We have offered these workshops to the general public and professionals as well as USU Graduate students. The primary workshop is a 3-day event, typically held in Logan, Utah.  We teach these workshops when demand is sufficient to cover our costs. Alternatively, we can teach a custom workshop for your organization for a fixed fee (contact Joe Wheaton to discuss).  

Planned and Past Workshops:

We have taught bespoke 1-2 day workshops for various organizations:

For 2015, two bespoke workshops are planned:
  • May 4-5, 2015 - Utah Division of Wildlife Resources - Open only to UDWR employees; contact Craig Walker to enroll. 
  • October 2015 - USFS Region 4 - Open only to USFS employees; contact Cynthia Tate to enroll. 
Sorry, the above 2015 workshops are not open to the general public.
