Fall 2020 Report
Our volunteers have been working on the dams about every other week all of late summer and into the early fall.
We lost our Our Beavers have been busy this year and as a result out general water levels have been higher too. (Of course the 3 or 4 rains that dumped 3 - 5" each could also have something to do with it!)
trapper 2 years ago when he moved out of the area. The board has hired a replacement for the fall trapping season.
A nuisance permit was requested for early trapping unfortunately, it was denied. So our trapping season starts on 10/31/2020. All of the traps will be west of the boat landing dam. So if you walk back in the marsh, watch your step. We don't want to have any accidents.
In preparation for the season, our volunteers will be tearing the dams down right before the traps are set. This way we can expect the beaver to be busy in that area rebuilding the dams.
Water Level on 10/13/2020. The stick is measured in 10ths of an inch. So 3.8 means 3 feet, 9.6 inches.
Summer 2020 Report
Over the weekend of 7/25/20, volunteers Maggie and Mike Lick headed out to the dam after it was reported by Pete Underthun that we were completely blocked with no outflow. The before and after pictures are pretty impressive. Thank you to our volunteers!
