Beaver Corps Training Program and Fundraiser Update

Nearly 2 weeks ago the Beaver Institute launched a new Beaver Corps training program with a corresponding fundraiser. I have some good news and some bad news. Interest in our new Professional Beaver Corps training program has far exceeded our expectations. We are thrilled at the number of people interested in learning successful techniques to non-lethally resolve beaver conflicts.
