VCE Biologists Sara Zahendra and Kent McFarland visit an old beaver lodge at the North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier. Join them as they talk with Ken Benton, North Branch Naturalist and Educator, about beaver adaptations and how they are important keystone species. Inching through the mud, they also crawl inside the old lodge and see what it might be like to live in a beaver lodge.

This is the beaver pond we visited. It has been abandoned for about 3 years and has grown into a lush meadow. @K.P. McFarland
