Living with the American Beaver
This paper’s purpose is to provide information on living with Beavers. American Beavers provide important watershed health and ecological benefits, yet are of management concern because of the damage they sometimes inflict on property. Striking a balance can be challenging, particularly in an urban setting. The purpose of this document is to offer guidance for living in harmony with this species, and (to the extent possible) for incorporating beaver activity into watershed management decisions and restoration projects—particularly for salmon recovery.
