Crow’s Nest: They’re baaaack!

October 29, 2013


After a few years without beavers in this section of French Creek (but apparent both upstream and downstream) beavers have once again built a dam on French Creek at Crow’s Nest.

The level of the creek has gradually risen and a difficult bushwhack gets you back to this spot where there is a narrow dam with a three foot fall. I haven’t seen the architects themselves yet this time. The habitat created by beavers the last time they were here, including acres of trees that died due to their flooding, has been a real benefit to wildlife on the preserve.
