Northern Virginia Landowner Funds Beaver Habitat Restoration Feasibility Study

The Rapidan Institute in Partnership with the Virginia Wildlife Habitat Cooperative (contractor) has received approval of a proposal to study creation of North American Beaver habitat for a tributary of Goose Creek, in the Potomac watershed. Locations for the creation of Beaver Dam Analogs (BDAs) will be evaluated and a construction budget will be created. BDAs are cheap, and easily replaced. They can reconnect incised streams and rivers to their floodplains.
