The Beaver Ecology & Relocation Center was founded to enhance and support the practice of relocating beaver to improve degraded riverscapes. We provide live trapping, transport, and care of problem beaver and release to locations that can benefit by their restoration capabilities. The center includes a holding facility, called the Beaver Bunkhouse, and a transport trailer designed to ensure a safe and secure relocation process. Additionally, we conduct research to better understand beaver behavior and habitat requirements to improve the success that beaver will stay and survive in their new environment.
Find resources and recommendations to minimize beaver damage and realize the benefits of coexisting with beaver on your property.
During the relocation process, the beavers are housed at the 'Beaver Bunkhouse.' Learn more about how we house, care for, and relocate problem beavers.
