Beavers are found throughout North America except the Southwest and Mexico. To beavers, a pond is security as they are primarily aquatic. The tail is perhaps the beavers most distinguishing characteristic; broad and flat with blackish scales it serves as a rudder, sculling oar, and alarm-sounder when slapped on water.
Beavers build well-engineered dams to slow water flow in streams and rivers, and then build a stable lodge for their shelter. Beavers are a keystone species as their dams create habitat for other aquatic organisms. From the point of view of water quality, water supply, and wildlife habitats, beavers are generally beneficial. Beavers are the only animals other than humans to alter their environment to suit their needs. This distinction earned them the name Little People from the Native Americans of New England. Beavers can teach us to make our dreams a reality through our actions.
