VIDEO now available for MAY 20 Community Program - Beavers and Why They Matter

View the video on MCAS YouTube Channel.

Description: If you walk along the Salinas River in California much of it is a dry, sandy wash. Imagine instead seeing large expanses of ponds surrounded by lush willows and cottonwoods, teaming with wildlife and birdsong. This difference leads to answering the question, ‘Why Do Beavers Matter?” In this presentation, Audrey Taub will explain how beavers can help make the Central Coast wetter, more resilient to floods, droughts, and fire, thus creating a more sustainable climate for birds and other wildlife. She will also explain how to get involved in promoting the creation of more wetlands in your area by supporting the beavers.
