Helping “stalemate” the beavers

Submitted by Lisa Herrmann

It is a tradition in our troop to help someone in our community. One such effort went to help lakes in the Pella Crossing area. After the flood, things changed in the way the lakes were made up, and some pesky beavers were trying to block the flow of water between the lakes, which in turn would have flooded newly planted vegetation. We helped their pipe system that keeps the water flowing!  Afterwards, a ranger took us to show how it all worked.
