Has anyone ever told you that you are "as busy as a beaver"? Are beavers really busy? We know they have changed our New England landscape in very important ways. They build dams and lodges.. what else? How do they get through the winter? On this Trustees Trekker hike, we will learn all about beavers' amazing adaptations and natural history. We will search for signs of beaver living at Farandnear - and if we're really lucky, we may see a beaver in one of the ponds!
