Short Description of Activity

Nichole Fox taught us about beaver structures and how they affect ecosystems to store water, slow it down, recharge acquifers, and provide habitat for other plants and animals.


Sunny day, right in Silverton, snowshoeing and skiing on easy, flat terrain with a few small slopes. Two participants went back to cars early – parked at the Silverton Chamber building lot.
