Human-Beaver Coexistence Fund (HBCF) partnered with the Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) for an educational and productive volunteer afternoon to protect priority trees at Cool Spring Preserve from being felled by beavers. HBCF founder and former PVAS AmeriCorps volunteer, Alison Zak, taught participants how to coexist with beavers by wrapping trees to protect them from chewing. Then we worked together to put our new skills into practice! We spent the winter solstice wrapping trees instead of presents 🙂
Stay tuned for future volunteer opportunities!
