From the ATA Archives: Beaver Trapping

Youth Beaver Trapping School poster - click here

Now, for those of you in Fairbanks who might have missed this, ATA helped Alaska Fish and Game with a beaver control project in the Chena River for two winters. The primary stipulation of this project was education for kids - getting high risk kids out and interested in something that might have a positive impact on their lives. Here are a few pictures of the project and the happy trappers of Boy Scout Troop 6 from Fort Wainwright!
