  • 10/5 Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary in Norfolk, Beaver activity seems to reach its peak in fall, when these industrious creatures begin making preparations for winter. And the best way to gauge beaver activity levels is to take a look at the surrounding vegetation. Recently, a group of volunteers and sanctuary staff did just that. Taking a casual tally along the shore of Stony Brook Pond, they found more than 90 trees and shrubs impacted by beavers within the last several months. Yes, living with beavers can be a challenge. But the benefits far outweigh the difficulties. Ecologically speaking, beavers are what's known as a keystone species. Their natural behaviors, which humans often deem problematic, are actually critical to the creation, health, and survival of freshwater wetlands. There's also the intangible pleasure and joy that observing the beavers and their antics brings to sanctuary visitors. Look for signs of these busy creatures on your next visit, and let us know what you think the beavers are up to!
