Beaver Believers

The Beaver Believers

Saturday, Mar 11 4pm
Sponsored by Colorado Food and Farm Alliance and Western Slope Conservation Center
Tickets: $10 

The Beaver Believers is an award-winning feature documentary sharing the urgent yet whimsical story of an unlikely cadre of activists – five scientists and a sassy, spicy hairdresser – who share a common vision. They’re all working to restore the North American Beaver, that most industrious, ingenious, bucktoothed engineer, 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. As a keystone species, beaver enrich their ecosystems, creating the biodiversity, complexity, and resiliency our watersheds need to absorb the impacts of climate change. Beavers can show us the way and do much of the work for us, if only we can find the humility to trust the restorative power of nature and our own ability to play a positive role within it

This film will inspire you to think differently about climate change.

A panel discussion will follow the movie with author Ben Goldfarb, Nichole Fox of the Give a Dam advocacy group, and Ashley Hom, USFS Hydrologist.

A reception begins at Paonia Books immediately after the panel at the Paradise Theatre of Paonia ~ 6:30 pm. RSVP required for the reception.
