Beavers are a positive, life-giving species in the Northeast. They deserve much more protection than they are afforded. Management of beaver by town road crews destroys wetlands and creates habitat for invasive species. Imagine a world where the DEP actually works with town crews to bring them out of the dark ages of beaver management. There are non-lethal ways to deal with beavers and water-level control systems beyond pulling dams with a backhoe.

State and municipal ignorance ... it's a shame.

Madison trust needs to get out there and wire-fence-wrap the larger trees... it works.

The trail starts at the intersection of Fawn Brook Circle and Green Hill Road.
At least that's the easiest way to access that land. It is a beautiful place, but in the summer, the mosquitoes are incredibly bad.

To the person who was whining about road crews destroying beaver dams: get a life, you loser. Beavers can be amazingly destructive, and they are quite common. We don't need to have social workers for each beaver, ok?
To the road crews: beavers will rebuild a destroyed dam in a matter of hours- don't waste your time. You have to trap them and take them for a long ride.
