BEAVERS IN CITY CREEK CANYON

BY: Malea Gardiner

 

INTRODUCTION:

Beavers have an important part of history in Utah as well as in the United States. Their presence in a habitat is vital to the survival of other animals and plants. In the recent past, City Creek Canyon and watershed has been the home of a number of beaver. Most lived on the upper part of the canyon, where shallow ponds created willow dominated communities. Five years ago beavers cut trees down along the existing lower nature trail. In this web page you will learn about the description, lifestyle, and history of beavers.
