Busy Beavers . . .

Took advantage of the nice weather, and a relatively high tide to re-visit the beaver dam and lodge in the headwaters of Church Creek. It seems that the beavers have been busy in the past year, and maybe they’ve been able to take advantage of the relatively dry conditions the past few months to do more work on dams.


The beaver lodge is quite a bit higher, and lots of indications that the beavers have been adding to the dirt and sticks on the top.


Substantial dam erected within the past year by beavers, just below Rt. 665, Aris T. Allen Blvd., and 30 or 40 feet upstream from the lodge.


This is a second dam about 100 feet downstream from the lodge. This has been considerably reinforced by the beavers in the past year. There was red fox hunting in the bush behind, and later I saw several white tail deer on the nearby hillside.
