Beavers make their home on the Northwestern University campus

I saw your post. Fascinating to see

The beavers in the water at  the University.

I’d say an admirer of beavers I am.

How they all work together in the building of a dam.

  • Yes, they're dam good -- I mean good dam -- builders.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Best dam builders may be correct according to Evanston Now, which has the take that the beavers will do the only construction on campus, depriving Evanston of building permit revenue.

  • If the beavers dam up the North Shore Channel, there will be plenty of flooding in Ravenswood Manor.

  • Maybe we don't speak English. I was watching some British streaming car show, where it appeared that they were disparaging the Vauxhall Beaver, but the tags said Viva.

    At least I know what the Vauxhall Chevette was.
