Build a beaver den(s) to be placed in Rock Creek and/or tributaries of Rock Creek to encourage beaver to live and work in the creek.


Beaver dams increase water storage and create habitat for many other animals and plants including deer, elk, moose, weasels, raccoons, herons, frogs, ducks, geese, woodpeckers and important insects. Students would help build and install beaver dens.

The project outcome will be a student made beaver den that will provide housing for beavers in Rock Creek.
