Document Description
Remove non-native North American Beavers by trapping at Washoe Meadows, Emerald Bay, D.L. Bliss, Sugar Pine Point, Ward and Burton Creek State Parks and Lake Valley State Recreation Area. Significant resource and facility damage is occurring including the cutting of mature aspen and cottonwood trees and the buckling of bridges due to flooding from beaver dams. Project implementation will return beaver populations to a level in which resource and facility damage is minimal.
