West Linn Nature Resources






Do you have a beaver on your property but not sure what to do? We can help.

  • Pond levelers help control water depth and enables property owners to prevent excessive flooding
  • Culvert protectors prevent beavers from clogging drainage under roads or infrastructure
  • Tree cages can be placed around trees in a specific way to prevent beaver from felling property trees
  • Other methods include sand-based paint (beavers don’t like to eat trees with grit on them), beaver dam analogues (BDA) can promote beaver activity in a different location, and fish passage options when necessary
  • Site assessments to determine the best course of action
  • Relocation is possible, but is the final option because new beavers tend to move in thus recreating the issue.
