Here you'll find one of several wetlands at Eagle Mountain Wilderness Preserve. This small pond is actively changed by beavers. Beavers are ecosystem engineers whose dams create conditions for a diversity of plant, insect, and bird life to thrive. Yet because their activities often damage or inconvenience human infrastructure, they can often be removed or killed. Here at Eagle Mountain, beavers are free to engineer this ecosystem as they please.
