Beaver Work

Beaver Work

[all the pictures were taken yesterday June24 & I finished this post this morning June 25]

Tuesday will be my thirtieth wedding anniversary. So, I have something in common with the beaver who lives in the brook that runs from Trustees of Reservations across my property to reach connect with the Charles.

Here are a few beaver facts I'm learning, courtesy of The Wilderness Classroom website:

Beavers live in ponds, lakes, rivers, marshes, and streams all across North America.
Beavers are very busy.
Beavers have long, sharp teeth known as incisors that are used for gnawing.
Beaver teeth are so strong that they are able to chew through large tree trunks. . . .
Beavers love to eat the bark and leaves from the trees that they fell. . .
Beavers seem to keep the same mate for life. . .
