Learn to think like a beaver, 6:30 to 9 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 15, at the Fall City Library. King Conservation District will host a free workshop on beaver management, covering such topics as beaver history, biology, the permitting process to deal with beavers, and the solutions available to outsmart these furry creatures.

We know that beavers are impressive engineers and it is important for us to know how to think like them if we’re going to outsmart them. Learn from the experts at Beavers Northwest, Snohomish Conservation District, and King County to leave with the best available information about what you can do with your beavers and dam to solve the issues in the most cost-effective manner possible.

Beaver populations have been exponentially growing in King County and there is a lack of information on where the beavers are moving and how many beavers are currently here. Citizen participation in this workshop will help to support future resources for landowners .
