Beavers: Our Watershed Partner

Online using Zoom Video Conferencing Technology
Cows and Fish, Alberta Riparian Habitat Management Society
Love them or not, we should at least pay homage to beavers. Beavers play a critical role in maintaining healthy watersheds and creating wetlands, keeping water on the landscape and providing habitat for many species. Some refer to beaver as “ecosystem engineers”, while others use a variety of unflattering names to describe them. However, if we would like to understand beavers, recognize their role in our watersheds, and figure out how to live with them, a good place to start would be to educate ourselves on their ecology, life history, and the connections to watersheds. Through a better understanding of beavers, we might be better able to grasp the issues, challenges, and options for future possibilities of living with beavers. This presentation will provide an overview of beaver ecology and the ecological significance of beavers on the landscape.
Free for Friends of Fish Creek Members, $10 for non-members, free for youth 16 years of age and younger with a registered adult.
