We're having a Beaver Dam Barbecue! We have been busy this summer making way for beaver along Camp Creek in the North Fork Burnt River Watershed by building mock beaver dams that will restore ecological function and hopefully encourage beaver to colonize our project area. Come join us on Saturday, September 30th, and let's build a few mock beaver dams together while we share with you regarding the ecological value of beavers and how we are going about making way for them. And we will end the day with a tasty lunch! For more details and to register, please contact Madison O'Bryant at or call 541-523-7288.
