In the recent decade, there has been a growing interest from landowners and land managers regarding how to manage/live with beavers. This signaled to us a real need for sharing information on how to co-exist with beavers and using beavers as a watershed management tool for watershed resiliency and restoration. We have been, and continue to share this information by hosting webinars, hands-on workshops, and providing written resources, which can be found in the sidebar of this page. We will be adding to this collection over time so please check back often.
If you are interested in attending a workshop or webinar please contact us.
