Dam Forest Preserve
Just got back from a walk with my wife through the local forest preserve. A couple posts ago, I commented on how cool it was to see a beaver so up-close and personal. My wife and I rounded the bend to the lake...and heard the sound of rushing water. The Park District had destroyed the beaver's dam between the two lakes. The water level was noticeably lower. This made me think a couple of things - are we really conserving nature if we wreck something one of nature's creatures has constructed to survive... and I really hope the beavers are still here.
