WINTER IS COMING! THE FULL MOON IN NOVEMBER IS CALLED THE BEAVER MOON! Beavers are hard at work preparing for the coming winter. Native Americans set beaver traps at this time before the winter freeze so that they would have winter furs to keep them warm. This November full moon is also called the FROSTY MOON.
