Participate in a Beaver-Focused Discussion Group

The Mid-Willamette Beaver Partnership is inviting those who own or manage property in the Mid-Willamette Valley to participate in a discussion group about interactions you have with beavers on or near your property. By Mid-Willamette Valley, we are referring to the areas within the Luckiamute, Ash Creek, Marys River, North Santiam, South Santiam or Calapooia watersheds which includes large portions of Benton, Linn, Polk, and Marion counties and small portions of Lincoln and Lane counties. We are looking specifically for those who derive a significant proportion of your income from your land. The discussion will be conducted online via Zoom. Action Research, an independent research agency, has been hired to conduct this group. As a thank you, participants will receive a $50 gift card as compensation for participation in the 90-minute discussion.

The purpose of the discussion group is to gather a variety of perspectives about the presence of beavers in the area. We want to talk to land owners and managers who have been or are impacted by beaver activity on or near their property. The Partnership will use the results of the discussion to understand more about the relationship between humans and beavers.The discussion group will be held the week of March 20th, 2023. Further details will be provided upon acceptance into the group. To see if you qualify to participate, please call Action Research at (760) 722-4000 ext. 104 between 8:30am and 5pm Pacific time. If outside regular business hours, please leave your name, telephone number, and best time to reach you and someone from Action Research will contact you.
