Beaver Willows

Beaver Willows is a privately managed Wildlife Habitat Park. The property is registered with the National Wildlife Federation.  Animals that live in the park depend on the sources of food, water, and shelter that are found in the wetland, field, and forested portions of the nature habitat.

Beaver Willows is in the Tualatin River watershed system. It is located on Glencoe Swale which empties into McKay Creek in Hillsboro, Oregon.

Before this area became a wildlife habitat it was over-run by invasive Himalayan Blackberries, Purple Nightshade, and Morning Glory. Through the efforts of property owners, Jane and Ed , and their neighbor, Dave, the area has been transformed into a space frequented by a variety of resident and migratory birds, raccoons, beaver, muskrats, squirrels, snakes, newts, and, unfortunately, invasive American bullfrogs. and nutria.

Plans are to continue work with invasive species management, and habitat restoration. Clean Water Services assists by providing native plants to support Ed’s and Jane’s efforts. The community resource and partnership is greatly appreciated.

    1. Hi Sheri. Welcome to Beaver Willows; thank you for coming for a visit! It will be interesting to compare wildlife sightings and landscape changes on our properties as the season changes. Next month, the crocus should begin popping up in our garden. I post most of my nature pictures under the “Wildlife” tab on my blogsite. Looking forward to seeing you again. ~Jane
