“Living with Beavers” by Ariana Winkler, SCD

It’s an otter! It’s a muskrat! It’s a….. beaver!

These dam-building engineers can certainly cause headaches by chewing trees, blocking culverts, or building dams that flood your property, but Snohomish Conservation District is here to help! In this webinar, learn about the benefits of having beavers on your property, some strategies for managing beaver conflicts, and opportunities for assistance from the District. Ariana Winkler, Living with Beavers Program Lead, promotes beaver coexistence and the habitat benefits of beaver ponds as she helps landowners with issues that can arise from having beavers on or near their property. She’s ready for your questions!
