The City of Camrose is fortunate to have a water system that comes into the city from the north and winds its way through many park areas as it continues south and connects to Dry Meat Lake. This is where beavers follow these waterways and enter our park areas where they build dams and live.

While you are enjoying the trail system, you may notice deciduous trees that are wrapped in caging. This protects the tree from beaver damage and we periodically expand the caging around trees as they grow.  Beavers usually leave coniferous trees alone and prefer birch, poplar, willow, and aspen trees.

Should you notice any trees that look like the wire is growing into the tree or any beaver damage to trees along the City’s urban park system, we encourage you to contact Community Services at 780.672.9195 or at
