Washington state farmers to get update on beaver controls

A workshop for farmers trying to deal with problems caused by beavers and beaver dams will be presented 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, June 20, in the Carnation Farms’ Alpine Room, 28901 NE Carnation Farm Road, Carnation, Washington.

According to a news release, beaver dams in agricultural areas can create impossible situations, often rendering lands unusable for farming.

Over the last few years, this problem has become significant for many lowland farm owners in western Washington, forcing some to plant later or abandon fields altogether.

Unfortunately, there is a fair amount of confusion regarding what can and cannot be done to remedy the situation.

Representatives from King and Snohomish Conservation Districts, Beavers Northwest, The Tulalip Tribes, Snohomish County Surface Water Management, Snoqualmie Watershed Improvement District, King County Water and Land Resources, and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will share information on options and answer questions.

Space is limited for this free event, so preregister is recommended here. For more information, visit here or contact Kate Ryan, 425-357-6024.
