A vital part of aquatic ecosystems across North America, beaver came close to extinction in California by the late 1800s. Kate Lundquist and Brock Dolman of the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center WATER Institute will share the historic and current plight of this "keystone” species, interesting facts about its remarkable biology and how the North American Beaver can benefit humans, birds and the environment. Learn how this ecosystem engineer is helping urban and rural communities restore watersheds, recover endangered species and increase climate change resiliency. Brock and Kate will share how over ten years of research and collaborative restoration are successfully working to Bring Back the Beaver across California. They will also share preliminary results from the beaver restoration feasibility assessment they have been conducting for West Marin watersheds.
