About this event

Leave it to Beaver and other Furbearers

A 1 ½ hour program offering a general introduction to the suite of species in Vermont called Furbearers and then diving deeper into the ecology of beavers, one of Vermont’s keystone species. Visual aids such as a beaver skull replica and scat replica will help the audience understand this industrious creature. There will be time for questions about beavers and any of the other native furbearer species.

Mary Beth Adler has worked for VT Fish and Wildlife Dept. for 19 years as a wildlife technician. Over the course of those years, her responsibilities have included working primarily with the furbearer management program participating in research and monitoring projects, entering data, installing water control structures to help mitigate beaver-human conflicts, and overseeing the upkeep and use of a dozen Furbearer Education Kits circulating throughout the state. She has also worked with private landowners to help improve wildlife habitat on their land, assisted with a bear study, and gets recruited to help with any number of wildlife-related projects when needed.

This event is sponsored by Springfield Town Library and VT Fish & Wildlife.
