Beavers- Friends or Foe?
How should we best live with the many beavers that call Lousignont Creek in the Timber Forest home? On the one hand their tree falling and dam building add to the health of the creek and forest, while on the otherhand their habit of wandering far beyond their riparian corridor to girdle trees that we were hoping to contribute to the financial surival of the forest business. As you can see, the boss is not pleased! We are all increasingly aware of the positive roles that beavers play. Here is a cartoon that makes the case for “more beavers” – http://www.yesmagazine.org/beavers . Thanks to Charlie Graham for passing it along.
