        Time-Lapse: Beaver Lodge at the Crane Trust

        Beavers are the engineers of the wetland ecosystem.  They build dams to slow the flow of water in streams and rivers so that they can build lodges for shelter. For more than 20-million years beavers gnawed trees and built dams in the Platte River prairie region. Beavers were historically important to the North American fur trade, and as a result, they were hunted to near extinction by 1900.
