CCS Dam Removal

Dam Removal

Building capacity for local groups to plan for and implement community-based monitoring of streams before, during, and after dam removal.


As momentum builds for dam removal throughout the United States, monitoring will be critical for both scientists and managers to assess and respond to the geophysical and biological impacts of these disturbance-causing, yet potentially regenerative, ecological events. Citizen science is one approach that can overcome insufficient monitoring while sustaining public engagement and connecting communities with both science and their local environment.



Resources for Citizen Science Project Planning

We are excited to share three resources use in developing or evolving citizen science projects. While their focus is on dam removal and watershed restoration, much of this material could be useful for a wide range of contexts and problem areas related to conservation and natural resource management.
