An important member of the parks wildlife community and ecosystem engineer, beavers continue to have a significant impact on the ecosystem here in Fish Creek and throughout North America. Join us for a double-header movie night and find out what’s being done to foster coexistence with beavers both in Fish Creek, and south of the border!
Each screening will be followed by a live Q&A with the Friends of Fish Creek and with The Beaver Believers filmmaker, Sarah Koenigsberg.
