Breakout Room Discussion

The subgroup suggests that beaver modified landscapes are the primary positive benefit of beaver activity.

Recognizing that beaver don’t always do the activities we would like them to do or in the areas we want them to be, in your small group, share with each other your thoughts on:

  • Where beaver modified landscapes are the most beneficial.
  • What are the potential impacts – both positive and negative.
  • Metrics to measure positive impacts on a landscape.

Note that the next meeting will focus on the limiting factors of beaver persistence and their ability to have a positive impact on the landscape

  • Work group members will be automatically assigned to a small diverse group.
  • Each small group will be led by a member of the subgroup or the facilitation team.
  • Meeting ground rules will apply to the small group discussion.
  • The YouTube livestream is not available for each small group, but each group will be recorded and made available as part of the meeting record.
