Dan Foster used his remote wildlife camera to capture this series of beaver photos at SVT's Herene Reservation in Stow. Dan writes:
"The Herene Reservation in Stow borders Elizabeth Brook, and the local beavers have established a dam across the river. I set up my camera downstream from the dam, where it appeared a new beaver scent mound was under construction. Beavers build these mounds and deposit scent (castoreum) to mark their territory.
On March 22nd, a beaver approached the camera, stood on its hind legs to investigate, and then launched back into the water with a splash."
