Distribution

Mountain beavers inhabit forestlands along the Pacific Coast of North America, from sea level to as high as 7,000 ft (2,000 m) in subalpine forests. They range south from 50°N in southwestern British Columbia through western Washington and Oregon to northern California where inland they extend further south to 36°40'N along the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Two disjunct populations occur on the coast of California north of San Francisco Bay.
