King County manages over 28,000 acres of parks and natural lands, and beavers live in streams and other water bodies across the region. Sometimes the activities of beavers on County land affect adjoining properties.

We recently held two workshops to find out what it means to our neighbors for the County to be a good neighbor when it comes to beavers.

The workshop objectives were to:

  • Engage with and learn from one another.
  • Learn what it means to our neighbors for the County to be a good neighbor where beavers are concerned.
  • Generate new ideas for means of co-existence.
  • Generate input that will inform County policies and programs regarding beavers.

As we summarize what we hear and make progress on this work, we will be posting it to this web page.
