Beavers: Nature’s Engineers, Troublesome Rodents, Iconic Canadian Symbol and So Much More
Thursday, May 18, 2017
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Presented by Kathryn Hull, Cows and Fish; Shalane Friesen, Formal and Environmental Educator Fish Creek Provincial Park; and Ryan Hannusch, Fish Creek Provincial Park Conservation Officer
We call them nature’s engineers for good reason. No other species other than humans has the potential to change the landscape as much as beavers do. They are strong, intelligent, hard working and yes very busy. Their industrious nature means that their work frequently brings them into conflict with humans and our infrastructure. In this presentation, Cows and Fish and Alberta Parks will share some of the beaver’s natural history and role they play in watershed resiliency, while also discussing some ways we can manage them that will reduce conflict and may help increase our tolerance of beavers. Join us on May 18 to learn about these fascinating creatures and integral members of the wildlife community.
