safety & construction videos
Building BDAs and PALS are part of a Low-Tech Process-Based Restoration (LTPBR) technique that doesn't require extensive training or heavy equipment and therefore can be done by a diverse workforce. However, there are inherent risks in working outdoors in uneven terrain, with sharp tools, large woody materials, and a variety of equipment. These videos go over some of the safety issues to be aware of while participating in Low-Tech Process-Based Restoration. After you have watched the videos, please take the short safety quiz below and then sign the volunteer waiver to become an Anabranch Solutions LTPBR volunteer.
implementation logisticS, equipment & safety
In this video, Scott Shahverdian goes over the logistics, equipment and safety issues associated with LTPBR work and building instream structures. He talks specifically about post pounders and how to use them safely and effectively in riverscape settings. He also goes over staging materials for implementation.
construction of pals & bdas
Stephen Bennett discusses LTPBR implementation, specifically best practices for building beaver dam analogs (BDAs) and post-assisted log structures (PALS).
