Beaver Dam Analogs (BDAs) and Post Assisted Log Structures (PALS)

BDAs are structures that mimic beaver dams. BDAs hold back water on the landscape later in the season, which disperses flows onto the floodplain, and recharges groundwater supply.

BDAs and PALS also provide important habitat for salmon and other wildlife. Creating greater complexity in the channel to encourage habitat diversity.
