So this week we’re exploring the beaver in two very different but important ways.
First we’ll hear from University instructor, naturalist, photographer and author, Michael Runtz, about his new book – Dam Builders: The Natural History of Beavers and Their Ponds.
Then we’ll talk with Dian Murrell of the Alouette Valley Association, whose frustration with the beaver-trapping ways of her municipality led her to working with APFA to find non-lethal solutions to potential conflict.
Note: Drought has not been treated by beaver introduction in California as stated in this week's episode; Oregon, Washington, Colordado, Utah and New Mexico are states where beaver relocation is legal.
