Beavers have been active on Lake Boon this spring. This morning 3 beavers were seen at the north end of the first basin. This is enough to clear-cut your waterfront in short order, especially if you have birch or willow trees–their favorite flavors. Chicken wire or small mesh wire fencing are usually effective for preserving the trunks.
Also, remember the LBA annual meeting, Sunday, June 2 at 7:00 pm at the Wildlife Refuge information building. More details coming.
