Your tax deductible Donations to “Worth A Dam” will help maintain the Martinez Beavers in Alhambra Creek. All donations are conducted securely at Paypal, and will help with the following initial projects.
- Willow Replacement: Ultimately the beavers behavior of “coppicing trees” will encourage bushy dense growth, but in the meantime food sources can be augmented by replanting trees along the bank. These can gradually replace other trees that have been wire-wrapped for protection.
- Interpretive Signs: These can explain beaver features and behavior, showing the lodge and dams. These can begin at the Amtrak station to encourage visitors, continue to the primary dam to explain the flow device, and finish at the lodge to draw attention to beaver behavior. A fourth sign on Main St. could draw additional interest. [See a sample Interpretive Sign here]
- Beaver Management Scholarship: In 2010 Worth A Dam decided to use a portion of these donations each year as a grant for deserving cities investing in a flow device as humane beaver management. The grant requires funds be matched locally and used specifically for this purpose.
