The Southborough Community Fund has awarded a generous grant to support an education program which will help residents learn about the beneficial environmental impact of beavers and outline strategies for co-existing with the growing beaver population in the area. Three programs are planned to achieve this goal.

April 2, 2016. Lisa Carlin of Mass Audubon’s Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center and Wildlife Sanctuary will present a children’s program on beavers and their habitat.  Children will  “create” their own beaver dam and/or lodge with playdough and pretzels. Southborough Library, 2:30PM.
TBA. Mike Callahan of Beaver Solutions, LLC., will return and lead a walk at the Sudbury River to view a beaver dam and the installation of flow control devices used to prevent flooding.
More details will be announced as the dates become closer.
