The Beaver Moon
November’s full moon rises gently over the tree line at French Creek State Park in Elverson, Pennsylvania. It is known as the Beaver Moon because the animals are busy preparing for winter. For both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs.
