Beaver Webinar for Norfolk Conservation Commission
In this 45 minute informative presentation, Mike Callahan, Beaver Institute President, discusses beavers, their value, and how to successfully manage beaver problems when they occur. Mike also shares information on the Connecticut Beaver Initiative (CBI) a new grant program from the nonprofit Beaver Institute. The CBI assists local highway departments and other CT property owners resolve human-beaver conflicts nonlethally in a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, humane, and long-term manner.
The Connecticut Beaver Initiative is largely funded by the Connecticut-based John T. and Jane A. Wiederhold Foundation. Fifteen flow device projects were awarded grants and completed in 2020, with more planned for 2021. Any CT property owner, town, or organization experiencing a problem with beavers is encouraged to apply while funds last.
