"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these
has been deprived of the best part of his education."
-Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Beaver in Natural Areas Restoration - Teleconference (Feb 11, 11:45 am-Eastern)
Wednesday February 11th, 2009
Hundreds of years ago, there were beaver dams along virtually every stream. That was before their numbers were decimated by humans who hunted them the fur trade.
Time: 11:45am to 1:00pm Eastern
"Beaver in Natural Areas Restoration"
Today, in North America, beavers are making a comeback. Often their return is aided directly by humans translocating the animals, the result of resource managers and ecological planners who have gained an ever-greater understanding and appreciation for the environmental services these animals provide.
Beaver activities create and sustain wetlands; allow sediments and toxic materials to filter out of watersheds before they can harm aquatic ecosystems; and create biodiversity and provide habitat for both plants and animals, some of whom may be threatened or endangered. And that's just a partial list.
All that said, the return of the beaver can create questions for property owners and land managers as their dams creating flooding where recently there had been none.
Join the Stewardship Network as we hear from Skip Lisle of Beaver Deceivers, Bob Barr from Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis Center for Earth and Environmental Science, and our online participants to learn about this topic.
