It's National Beaver Day (in Canada).

Where's your Big Beaver Bash going to be?

Beaver lodge, Durham, NC

Compare this photo with one taken a few years ago to see the impact of the invasive species Ludwigia Peruviana, which is the red stemmed matted plant choking much of the open water.

This photo was taken February 26, 2006. You can see how successful L. Peruviana has been in colonizing the pond in just three years. Come back in the summer and see how much more is there.

About 40 people gathered at the lodge site behind Compare foods off Avondale Drive last Sunday for a tour of the pond sponsored by Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association. Kathi Beratan, center, led the tour and provided lots of information about stormwater runoff into the pond and the adjacent Ellerbe Creek.

Beavers, of course, are found in many places besides Durham. This is a beaver sighting in Cary.



  • i see the beaver pond needs a little trimming. sorry i could not make the tour.

    i hope to see you march 21st for the BQ Pageant casting call.
