From Chris:
Hi, we have and welcome associates across the state to handle beaver solutions and wetland restoration. Mostly, (especially this year) we volunteered to develop beaver habitat restoration techniques specific to Iowa. Our signature 6’ sand-painted sharpened willow stake is most promising for static or 30 mph high flows. Hundreds are planned for this winter season.
