We'll develop breakout groups focused around the four working goals of our Action Plan. Please name your first and second choices for which breakout group you would like to to advance in this meeting. If you are willing to work with any breakout group, please note that as well, which might help us balance group size for productive conversation. (Note: At times we will reconvene as a large group during the meeting, so that those of us whose work includes more than one goal can hear summaries and offer feedback.)
Goal 1: Integrate beaver into the design and approach of stream and wetland restoration, so that beaver restoration scales up and expands beyond isolated beaver habitat projects.
Goal 2: Expand beaver on public lands headwaters to restore self-sustaining ecological processes on riparian lands that will build resilience to drought and wildfires.
Goal 3: Provide coordinated education and outreach on the benefits of beavers and options for addressing nuisance concerns.
Goal 4: Remove legal and policy obstacles to beaver habitat restoration and relocation of beavers to suitable, prioritized habitat
