County Surveys For Beavers
Beaver numbers have been on the increase in Brunswick County for
the past several years.
With the increase, the Brunswick County Agriculture Extension Serv
ice has received more and more calls of damage caused by the semi-aquat
ic r xlcnt, said Milton Coleman, county Agriculture Extension director.
Several agencies are hoping to develop a regional management pro
gram for beavers. Coleman said. "We'ie doing a survey of folks on their
experiences with beavers, be it good or bad."
If beavers have provided landowners with benefits or have created
damage, persons are being asked to contact the Agriculture Extension
office in Bolivia to report their encounters.
The Brunswick County Soil Conservation office, N.C. Wildlife
Commission, N.C. Department of Transportation and local timber com
panies are also helping to organize the beaver management program.

field of arts and culture, education
health, human services and public
"The purpose of a challenge grant
is to make the public more aware

Residents can help by either do
nating money or gifts in kind to
ward matching the grant as long as
a monetary value can be placed on
