California Beaver Summit

Climate change is making California hotter, drier, and harder for people and wildlife. Beaver can help.

Please join us on April 7 (International Beaver Day) and April 9 for the California Beaver Summit. During two online half-day sessions the summit will explore the many benefits that beavers offer to the ecosystems they occupy.
