The sign reads:
Orphan - Raised at Trailside

"Due to years of unregulated trapping, the Beaver virtually disappeared from the United States. Reintroduced into this region in 1920 when 3 pairs were released in the park. Now very common.The beaver is the largest of North American rodents, weighing as much as 70 lbs. In addition to its large chisel-like teeth, it has webbed hind feet for swimming. The flat tail is also used for swimming, a rudder, and to slap the water surface when alarmed. Usually 4-5 kits are born well-furred with eyes open, in late spring or summer. Able to swim almost immediately. Feeds to a large extent on the bark of aspen, willow, birch, and maple. Aquatic plants are also part of its diet."
