Beavers are known for their natural trait of building dams on rivers and streams. Their colonies create one or more dams to provide still, deep water to protect against predators, and to float food and building material. Unlike most other rodents, beaver pairs are monogamous and stay together for several seasons, as reflected in this intimate pairing. This beaver pair is situated at the Luke McRedmond Landing along the Sammamish River; during the winter months, the water and mud of the river build up around the sculpture, as if these two creatures are emerging from the water.
