EcoTarium: Beavers, the Master Architects of Wetlands

April 20 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

“Beavers, the Master Architects of Wetlands” Forum
(Appropriate for adults and older children)
Saturday, April 20, 2024
4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join the EcoTarium for Beavers, the Master Architects of Wetlands, a forum where we delve into the profound ecological impact of beavers on wetland ecosystems and the policies crucial for their protection. Central to our discussion will be Leila Philip’s captivating book, “Beaverland: How One Weird Rodent Made America,” which offers an insightful look into the world of these industrious creatures.

As an introduction to the forum, author Leila Philip will read short excerpts from her book and reflect on the importance of these selections. A panel of experts (including Philip) will then share their unique expertise in various topics related to wetland conservation and beaver management. After an audience question and answer session with our panel, participants can explore the Museum after-hours, learn from interactive activities hosted by EcoTarium educators, enjoy a cash bar, and continue their discussion with our panelists.

This forum promises to deepen our understanding of the intricate relationships between beavers, wetlands, and human society. We are excited for you to join us as we appreciate the invaluable contributions that beavers provide as the master architects of wetlands, and together explore pathways towards a sustainable future.
