This is happening! 😍 🎥 Join us all you beaver believers! 🎟 Ticket link in bio.
Did you know that beavers are an important part in helping us combat the current climate crisis? These rodents help create thousands of reservoirs. These reservoirs help to slow down water, which in turn replenishes groundwater. As our climate becomes dryer, these reservoirs will be key in sustaining water supplies while also creating buffers for wildfire. Go beavers!🙌🏼
When in the field, our team loves seeing all the animals that benefit from the wetland habitat beavers help create. These photos were taken at one of our sites, featuring a Pacific tree frog and juvenile bald eagle 🐸🦅 (picture credit: @lars_nelson)
Are you in the Seattle area and want to learn more about beavers while also having a blast? Join us at Seward Park Audubon Center on May 12th! Check this link for more info🌲 http://sewardpark.audubon.org/events/science-nature-biscuit-beavers
Why are beaver front teeth orange? The answer lies in the iron content in this rodent’s teeth, which help keep their teeth strong enough to chew and chew without damage. A beaver’s front teeth also never stop growing and self sharpen, allowing the beaver to be the perfect tree chomping machine 🐾 (photo of a drawing done by a student excited about beavers!)
Not only does fauna benefit from beavers, but flora does as well! Can anyone identify these types of fungi?🍄

Beavers play an important role in creating and maintaining good salmonoid habitat. We’ve found many examples of this at our sites!
Beavers help create some of the most beautiful wetlands. What’s your favorite wetland/natural area to explore? 📸: @lars_nelson
Just another day on the job working alongside our mischievous beaver pals😛🌿
At Beavers Northwest, we LOVE spreading the news about these ecosystem engineers. If you have a classroom, business, or organization that would like to know more about these critters or management techniques, contact us! We will curate an educational program to suit your needs 🐾
At Beavers NW, one of the many things we do is help out landowners with beaver related flooding. We often install pond levelers (shown in images), which are devices that allow the beaver to live in its natural environment while keeping the water level low, reducing flooding to neighboring properties. Reach out to us if you have any beaver related issues! Our enthusiastic team is ready to help, rain or shine!🌞🌧
For being the largest living rodents in North America, beavers do pack a massive bite! In most swampy areas around Seattle, you can find evidence of recent beaver activity, so keep an eye out! 👀 🌿
