Beavers in Errol Creek

Just around the corner from home is Errol Creek wetlands restoration project by Portland BES. Took some pics today of one of the dams just before it enters Johnson Creek.

Several years ago, the city cleared out a field, dug it sown, installed wooden debris, and planted native species. It seems like some leavers have picked up where the city left off. (BES you are just quitters. [kidding!] )

Apparently there is a more extensive damn on the other side of the street. Will have to check that out another time.

Here are today’s pics.

 


Here is a beaver shot to compare:
