Articles About beavers
Checking in with the Glen
Since 2020, Glen Helen Nature Preserve has undergone an ownership change, moving from the care of Antioch College to the independently operated Glen Helen Association; received major grants for improvements; and become the home of some very industrious and popular beavers — and, of course, weathered it all through a pandemic.
Nearly $1M in improvements slated for Glen Helen
The old Antioch College power plant will soon be demolished and the land rehabbed into wetlands, thanks in part to a $988,119 grant from the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund.
Village Council — What about the beavers?
Members of Council, the Yellow Springs Tree Committee and local environmentalists considered that question at Council’s Oct. 17 meeting, following a report by Village Manager Patti Bates that beavers, previously believed to have taken up residence only at the Glass Farm wetlands, are now making a home, and a dam, at Ellis Park.
