Just came back from a little paddle around the island. The current on the second causeway bridge was very strong- there will be a lot of erosion.
I am sorry to say, there are still at least a dozen very large beavers. They were all huddled together, in a big furry pile. I paddled right up to them, and they made adorable little grunting noises before evacuating the one remaining mound that’s still out of the water, near the quonset hut… One of the engineers that works with me is on the South Nations Board, and says that you can hire trappers through the conservation authority. They’ve gotten at several big trees in that area- tons of new damage!
