Given the scale of degradation within streams and wetlands and throughout the West, we need all partners mobilized to restore these systems. Beavers are our greatest ally. But for this ecosystem engineer to successfully create resilience against drought & wildfire, they must be able to safely build and maintain their natural infrastructure while expanding their numbers and distributions across the state.
We will all meet in Portland, OR at 9 am, coordinate carpooling to the site location from there, and return in time to be at our meetup location between 5 and 6pm. Our final destination will be sent out via email prior to the volunteer day.
This is an in-person event and will follow Bark’s COVID-19 volunteer work safety protocol.
Before registering: Everyone interested in participating in Bark’s wetland mapping efforts is welcome! If you have wetland mapping training, we’ll send you into the field to get started. If not, please review Bark’s online wetland mapping training materials.
Join us in finding suitable habitat to introduce beaver so we can get this amazing ecosystem engineer back on the landscape!
