“Beavers: A Tremendous Potential Ally” an Environmental Studies Colloquium Series talk by Skip Lisle, M.S. Wildlife, Habitat, and Beaver Biologist, and President of Beaver Deceivers, LLC.

Skip will discuss how the long absence and recent return of beavers has affected our waterways, attitudes, and responses. He will outline the amazing potential that progressive, non-lethal beaver management has to save money and help restore rich, ancient, and long-missing habitats. This potential can only be fully realized if we stop treating this Keystone Species as a pest. That requires us to protect the infrastructure with high-quality flow devices like his Beaver Deceivers™?.

Having grown up on a beaver pond in Southern Vermont, Skip has retained a lifelong fascination with beaver-created wetlands: The richest, most dynamic, and most fascinating habitats on the landscape.
