Become a Flat-tailer:Volunteer! It's just as valuable as a cash donation. We cannot help beaver without your help.
We have several opportunities for you to donate your time to help us conserve beaver and beaver habitat:
Watershed Guardians helps landowners with beaver caused flooding by raising roads, installing Beaver Deceivers(tm) or Pond Levelers. At Haynes, we'll do all of these, all to keep the beaver colony from being trapped.
Are you aware of beaver causing road flooding? We are looking for opportunities to demonstrate how we can mitigate beaver-caused damage and retain the wonderful ecosystem services provided by beaver. We need your help! Let us know where you see culvert plugging in your travels!.
CURRENT ISSUES AND PROJECTS
Proposed Pond Leveler and driveway raising on Hoot Owl Road (Haynes Project)
The slides below show some of the watershed features created by beaver in 2007. Many of Flattailers recall that the East Fork of Mink Creek once had numerous beaver active Beaver Dams. Their ponds were epic in size and large trout were just beginning to thrive. Then something happened...the population crashed. Let's restore the East Fork. Tell Idaho Fish and Game to extend the trapping closure on the East Fork indefinitely. For a tour of the East Fork, call 232-0825.
