King County Beaver Working Group
Who we are
Several sections from multiple Departments in King County have been working together since 2017 on a Beaver Working Group. Our overarching goal is to find the best solutions for coexisting with beavers.
As the King County Beaver Working Group releases technical papers and other tools to facilitate living near beavers, we will post them here.
Our work products
- Beaver Management Technical Paper #1: Beaver Management Tools Literature Review and Guidance
- Beaver Management Technical Paper #2: Current Laws, Policies, and Practices
- Poster showing how beaver ponds integrate with the hydrologic cycle by recharging groundwater and keeping streams flowing year-round.
- Literature review of beaver life history to help with management choices (will post when complete)
