The land owner actively removes beaver because he does not believe they are native to the area. There are diversion gates, a large check dam, 2 unstablized headcuts. Land owner gave us a tour which was very nice. The meadow surface is fairly dry. Saw around 70 cattle grazing. Historically the area was used as a dairy and a fish hatchery. It is open to fly fishing and we saw several groups.
