Partners of the Beaver Project in the Methow Valley, put out a video recently about how biologists, forest service personnel and other experts are tackling climate change by applying adaptation. The below video provides ways that we can improve and reflect to assist our ever changing planet in various ways.
A tidbit of information to share:
- In the last 10 years 300 beavers have been relocated to 30 of the 47 watersheds in the Methow Valley.
- These beavers have assisted with slowing spring snowmelt, holding water in the high alpine country longer, cooling stream temperatures, decreasing sediment and reducing the impacts of flooding.
