Upcoming Events

Putting Beavers to Work for Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Symposium. December 7, 2017. Cochrane, AB.  Join the Miistakis Institute and Cows and Fish to explore the role that beavers can play in watershed restoration in Alberta. To date, the collaborative has focused its efforts on generating awareness about the role of beavers as ecosystem engineers and promoting coexistence through the demonstration and implementation of various coexistence tools. Through this work we have identified the need to bring stakeholders together to reflect on and highlight some of the great work that has been on-going within the field of beaver coexistence in Alberta and surrounding regions. There are a variety of groups, ranging from municipalities to environmental non-government organizations to land owners and researchers, who are doing important work to advance the use of beavers to realize watershed health. These efforts will be highlighted and celebrated in an effort to pass on knowledge of lessons learned and new research to those working to see beavers and humans mutually benefit from coexistence.  Click here to register.
