Week # 4 Beaver
“This Alder has tasty cambium and bark, I can’t help but come back for more.”
This the first beaver we have captured photo and video of in the valley. The beaver (Castor canadensis) is nocturnal, herbivorous, and can live as long as 20 years in the wild. Beavers are a keystone species that aid in supporting a diverse flora and fauna, through there manipulation of their habitat. Beavers cannot be hunted in Mendocino County.
