Muskrat Trapping in the Meadows

Muskrat by Chris TaylorMuskrat trapping has been part of the meadowlands ecology for centuries. A hundred  years ago, you could find 40 or 50 trappers active throughout the November-March season. Today that number may be as low as half a dozen.

In this week’s South Bergenite you can learn more from one of the last of the local trappers, in my first installment of Nature Next Door.
