Our friends at Clackamas Community College are hosting a workshop that sounds very interesting: managing vegetation for beavers. This workshop is designed to equip people with the knowledge to evaluate vegetation from a beaver's perspective and to develop strategies for modifying beaver behavior through plant selection and placement.


Managing Vegetation for Beaver

Develop the skills to modify beaver behavior!

Thursday Oct. 8, Friday Oct. 9 & Monday Oct. 12
10:00 am – 2:30 pm

 Workshop Price: $240 (discount available for students)

An understanding of plant ecology, coupled with beaver behavior, is integral to effective beaver management. Workshop participants will learn to evaluate vegetation based on beaver preferences and potential impacts on water systems, as well as to develop strategies for modifying a site's vegetation with specific beaver outcomes in mind — whether that be to encourage beaver habitation, or to discourage negative impacts at a particular location.

Instructor: George Kral, Forester & Project Developer at Ash Creek Forest Management.

This workshop consists of 12 hours of class and an assignment to do a short field excursion outside of the scheduled class time.

Professional Credit: Clackamas Community College, 1.3 CEU; Certificate of Completion will be provided.

Register for this workshop at Eventbrite.
