Designing Wetlands for Rare Amphibians, Tom Biebighauser, U.S. Forest Service
Populations of certain amphibians are in steep decline. Chytridiomycosis fungus, urban development, and global warming are appearing to spell doom for many species. The good news is that something can be done to help rare species of amphibians by restoring wetlands. You’ll see how wetlands can be designed and built to provide habitat for the wood frog, four-toed salamander, Chiricahua leopard frog, red-legged frog, eastern spadefoot, and great basin spadefoot.
Tom Biebighauser is an ASWM member who works as a Wildlife Biologist for the U.S. Forest Service. He has restored over 1,500 wetlands in 20-States and 2-Canadian Provinces, assisting thousands of private landowners and agency personnel with the design and construction of wetlands for improving wildlife and fish habitat. He teaches practical, hands-on workshops across North America where participants learn about wetland restoration and drainage by becoming involved in the design and construction of naturally appearing and functioning wetlands. Tom has written three books about restoring wetlands A Guide to Creating Vernal Ponds in 2003, Wetland Drainage, Restoration, and Repair in 2007, and Wetland Restoration and Construction - A Technical Guide, in 2011. Photos showing some of the wetlands he has built are available for viewing here. You may contact him at
