“The Beaver Believers” Film Screening and Q&A

The Beaver Believers is a feature documentary that tells the urgent yet whimsical story of an unlikely cadre of activists — a biologist, a hydrologist, a botanist, an ecologist, a psychologist, and a hairdresser — who share a common vision: restoring the North American beaver to the watersheds of the American West. The Beaver Believers encourage us to embrace a new paradigm for managing our western lands, one that seeks to partner with the natural world rather than overpower it. Shot in eight western U.S. states, Mexico and Canada, through desert drought, raging wildfires, spring floods and wetland serenity, this film will change the way you think about climate change and inspire you to take a bite out of the challenges we face, one stick at a time. Join us for a screening of The Beaver Believers followed by Q&A with the filmmaker, Sarah Koenigsberg.
