Beavers: Their Landscapes, Our Future

Wolff Auditorium at Jepson Hall, Room 114
Free and open to the public.

In his talk, award-winning environmental journalist Ben Goldfarb reveals how beavers shaped our country's landscapes, how fur trapping degraded North American ecosystems, and how a growing coalition of "Beaver Believers" are now restoring this industrious rodent to create salmon habitat, store water, and fight climate change.

Ben Goldfarb is a conservation journalist whose work has appeared in Science, the Washington Post, the Guardian, Orion Magazine, and many other publications. He is the author of Eager: The Surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter, winner of the 2019 PEN/E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award.
