Understanding and Living with Beavers

Posted May 6, 2014 by LSC

Developed for Alberta natural resource managers, municipalities, landowners and others, join Cows & Fish at one of these two FREE workshops on learning to understand and live with beavers.

Whether you love them or hate them, want to understand them, think you need them or want to learn how to live with them, you will find this workshop useful. An integral part of the workshop will be discussion about challenges, concerns and values. Topics to be discussed will include:

  • Beaver basics – Ecology, natural history, watershed connections
  • Beaver challenges – Issues, management, options and alternatives
  • Beaver case studies – How others are dealing and living with beavers
  • Beaver banter – Round table discussion on beaver messages, messaging, management issues, management options, information needs
  • Beaver next steps – Awareness messages, tool development, beaver role in watersheds, reintroductions and future management
  • Outdoor Field Trip – Ann and Sandy Cross Conservation Area (beaver reintroduction site, with technology use). Please be prepared for 2.5 hours outside & 15 minute walk.
