HOST AN INFORMATIONAL WEBINAR ABOUT LIVING WITH BEAVERS

In partnership with the City of Bothell and with help from a Department of Ecology grant, we at Snohomish CD presented about beavers today and took questions. We showed the tie from beavers to helping with water quality and supporting fish and other wildlife. Beavers are the ultimate ecosystem engineers!

      He is measuring the growth over the course of a year. It's easy to restore our streamsides with native plants!
