Busy Beavers Flood Local Parking Lot


Flooded parking lot at Magruder Park in Hyattsville, Md.

Recently, some beavers have been busy building a large dam in Magruder Park.  There is significant evidence of beaver activity along the back edge of the parking lot.  The beavers have felled many trees and created a large dam causing the parking lot to flood.

Beavers are second only to humans in their ability to change their surrounding environment. They create dams to transform fields or forests (or in this case a parking lot!) into wetlands.  The large ponds that they create also provide habitat for other animals, such as the Mallard Ducks seen flying in the photo below.

Keep your eyes peeled for beavers, and other wildlife, throughout the Anacostia Watershed!

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
