Beavers have two sets of eyelids — the lids underneath are transparent so they can see while swimming underwater. That’s just one fascinating facet of nature’s busy builders, featured in this engaging presentation by Chris Bernier, leader of the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department’s Furbearing Management Program. Participants in the forum at the Mount Holly Town Library learned all about beavers’ amazing engineering feats, how they benefit other wildlife and what to do when beaver architecture causes flooding and other problems for humans.
