Beaver Management Presentation
Beavers as collaborators in ecosystem restoration will be the subject of a talk sponsored by the Curry Watersheds Partnership on Friday, Feb. 21, 6-8 p.m., at the Curry Public Library (94341 3rd St.) in Gold Beach. The event is free and open to all.
The speaker will be Jakob Shockey, a wildlife biologist and expert in coping with beaver problems in environmentally sensitive ways. He will discuss the ways in which beaver play important roles in riparian and wetland ecosystems, and will cover basic beaver biology, their keystone role in our ecosystems, and the historic context of beavers and humans in the Pacific Northwest.
