Leave It to Beaver

By Linda Tancs

Everyone knows that beavers are industrious little creatures, prolific builders of dams to protect themselves against predators such as coyotes, wolves, and bears.   Although dams can be very beneficial in restoring wetlands, they can also cause property damage from flooding.  So what’s a property owner to do?  How about using our furry friends’ handiwork as ceiling art?  That’s what you’ll find at Beaver Lodge Cottage in Winvian, Connecticut, where a re-assembled dam adorns the ceiling above the bed.  A new spin on applied art, indeed.
