Conservationists, volunteers work to improve habitat to help attract beavers

Tour and tend’ event slated for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, and space for volunteers is limited

Volunteers and conservationists have been busy this fall at Vesper Meadow in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument creating dozens of in-stream log and branch structures and planting willows in an effort to attract beavers, along with the ecological benefits that beavers bring.

The privately owned Vesper Meadow property is about 1,000 acres and located in an upland area off of Dead Indian Memorial Road near Howard Prairie Lake. It’s a mix of forest, meadow, swampy patches and stream headwaters managed for conservation with the help of the Vesper Meadow Education Project, which invites biologists, students and others to observe nature up close and lend a hand if they’d like.
