On Friday Hubby and I took a couple of trips up to the beaver dams in Fountain Valley. Every year on a continual basis we have to rip sections of the dams apart or the Ranch seriously lacks for water. If there’s an abundance of water it’s fine but when there’s a water shortage the beavers do not like to share and keep building dams that get much too wide. We find draining off some of their water helps down here quite a bit.
We go to Fountain Valley Tree Farms which is on private property and we have permission from the owner.

It doesn’t take long and the water quickly subsides.
It was a tad breezy while we were there.
We managed to get one beaver.

The ponds the beavers have created have increased quite a bit since last year.
