Ribbon Cutting for new interpretive designs, featuring Napa Creek’s Urban Beaver Colony
Ribbon-Cutting and Celebration of Napa Creek’s Urban Beavers.
Since the completion of the Napa Flood Protection plan, the American Beaver – once plentiful throughout California but hunted and trapped to near-extinction – have begun to return to Napa River tributaries. The Napa Creek colony is unique in that it is thriving right in the middle of downtown. New interpretive signs designed by the P4 Practicum Group of this year’s Leadership Napa Valley class will help locals and visitors alike to understand and appreciate this special animal and its habitat in the restored Napa Creek corridor.
