Additional Information:
The beaver is one of nature’s most accomplished engineers. They build lodges, dam streams, and otherwise modify the environment to create their habitat. Beavers have periodically taken up residence at Walden Ponds over the years, and left some of their handiwork behind. While beavers are most active at night, we’ll see signs of their hard work in felled shrubs and trees, and old lodges. We’ll also learn about beaver babies, how beavers make their living, and how they survive through the winter. Volunteer naturalists will lead this easy walk to learn all about these furry, water-loving mammals.
