The Beaver State Podcast Episode 18: Beavers

July 23, 2020

Did you know that not all beavers build dams, and that just because you don't see a beaver dam doesn't mean beavers aren't there, or that beavers can probably travel much further than you think they can? In this episode, we talk to Oregon State University wildlife researcher Vanessa Petro about common misconceptions about beavers and what we do know about beaver behavior and conservation in Oregon.
