Busy Beavers

How do beavers change their environment to meet their needs? How do the changes beavers make affect that environment? Learn why beavers are called “ecosystem engineers” and the important role they play in our ecosystems. In this program you can transform into a beaver, experiment with how beavers build their homes, and discover the signs and clues beavers leave behind.
