How to outsmart a beaver

In an online program hosted by Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust, Thursday March 24 at 4 p.m., Skip Lisle of Beaver Deceivers International will explain how a device he developed called the Beaver Deceiver can allow beavers to thrive, while preventing damage to human property. Lisle holds a master’s degree in wildlife management from the University of Maine. In addition to the Beaver Deceiver, he has also invented devices for manipulating the flow of water and deterring beavers from behavior that would put them in conflict with humans. This program is free of charge: registration is required at coastalrivers.org/events. A link will be sent to participants after registration.
