Crow’s Nest: Something to gnaw on…
By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager
They’re back! There is a very little bit of fresh beaver sign along the Creek Trail. I thought we had a really big one on our hands until Tim Burris pointed out that the beaver was probably standing on snowpack or accumulated ice at the edge of French Creek.
We’ll keep an eye out for fresh signs. While we are sad to see individual trees felled, or have standing water kill floodplain trees, the wetland habitats beavers create are valuable for a wide variety of animals.
