Beaver Moon

What is a Beaver Moon? The full moon that appears in November is called the Beaver Moon. There is disagreement over the origin of November’s beaver moon name. Some say it comes from Native Americans setting beaver traps during this month before the swamps froze to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Other say that the Beaver Moon comes from the heavy activity of beavers building their winter dams. The Beaver Moon of November was sometimes also referred to as the Frost Moon by some Native American tribes.
