America’s Best Beaver Program

Kudos to Jake Jacobson and Snohomish County, WA Public Works

Over the last ten years, Jake Jacobson has created a groundbreaking program to protect roads from beaver flooding, while saving salmon habitat in Snohomish County, Washington. This program, the first of its kind in North America, is much appreciated by those doing road maintenance, such as Dave Finney, who supervises several road crews. Finney is a 22-year employee of Snohomish County Public Works, who has witnessed conditions before and after the beaver installations began. When asked whether the devices had decreased his workload, Finney replied “Oh yes, definitely. A few sites had to be cleaned out every other day. Now we clean them once or twice a year. Usually, we can leave them alone. Some we don’t touch for a year.”
