Join The Trustees of Reservations as they celebrate the November Beaver Moon! Also called the Frosty Moon, this full moon heralds the coming winter, and serves as a warning that ponds and swamps will soon freeze.

Native American tribes knew this moon appeared when it was time to set beaver traps to ensure a supply of warm winter furs.
