Part of the Weekend for Rivers event was learning about why beavers are an important part of river protection and habitat creation. The North American Beaver is viewed as a nuisance rodent by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources which means it's legal to kill at will. However, Beavers like other creature have a valuable role in the ecosystem of a river. To learn how to protect them visit www.beaversww.org. So meet "The Beav".
