The First Project

1979 – 1981 Little Brule

Beaver dam removal and brush bundle project to improve damaged stream habitat.  During this project over 3,300 feet of stream was improved using tag alder removed from the old beaver dam impoundments.  The tag alder was tied together in manageable bundles and placed in the river and staked to bottom.  This was to create a much narrower channel to increase velocities so sediment would pass downstream and result in a deeper stream course.
