The Beavers of Hudson Mills Metropark

North America’s largest rodent, the Beaver, was once abundant in Michigan, until unregulated trapping left only a few in Northern Michigan.  But now they’re back!  After a few seasons of sampling our Aspens and cottonwoods, a family has decided to stay the winter at Hudson Mills.  Meet at the Activity Center, for a brief introduction, then we will drive to the site where the beavers are busy. Please pre-register, 734-426-8211.
