|Beaver dam once located at Forks of the River WMA east of Ijams in early January.|
The heavy rainfall the second half of January has washed away the beaver dams at Forks of the River Wildlife Management Area and on Toll Creek the eastern most boundary of Ijams Nature Center.
It's too early to tell if the enterprising mammals will return and build again but it generally takes a lot to deter them.
Keep your fingers crossed.
