Sandhills Beaver

Record #:
In 1897, the state's last native beavers were trapped in Stokes County. Several unsuccessful attempts to reintroduce beavers were made in the early 20th century. However, in 1939, 29 beavers from Pennsylvania were released in the Sandhills Wildlife Management Area near Rockingham. By 1949, 385 beavers were counted. Wildlife biologists do not expect beavers to spread over the state from this nucleus.
