Establishing a baseline to assess the impact of restoration actions reconnecting a Bear Lake tributary.

Updated: Apr 8

As part of our research project with Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands in collaboration with USU’s Janet Quinney Lawson Institute for Land, Water, and Air I presented this poster at the 2024 Utah State University Spring Run Off Conference.

Our project is ongoing so this is more of an update on where we are at before diving into more field work in the very near future. I could have easily done one poster for each objective in the project but I did my best to squeeze as much as I could into this space.

Poster description:

Establishing a baseline to assess the impact of restoration actions reconnecting a Bear Lake tributary.


Establishing baseline conditions and post-restoration standardized monitoring is critical to assessing the impact of restoration. In preparation for a planned culvert removal to reconnect upstream migration for cutthroat trout in North Eden Creek, a tributary of Bear Lake, we are characterizing the current fish community and habitat conditions, and designing a monitoring plan capable of determining long-term success of restoration.


A special thank you to Dr. Timothy E. Walsworth, Jim DeRito and Dr. Phaedra Budy for their support with this project.
