Beavers and Drought (under construction)

TL;DR: water from beaver ponds is spread around the landscape in little channels the beavers dig. The pond water slowly seeps into the soil. When droughts happen, there is enough water stored in the soil around beaver ponds to keep plants green without rain. Beavers = Irrigation Managers.
