Event description
Join us on Zoom as we discover how beavers could help both urban and rural communities across California restore watersheds!

About this event

We have a lot to learn from beavers. These important, uncommon animals are ecosystem engineers, keystone species that improve the lives of other wildlife, and they can be pivotal in California land management. Join us to discover how beavers could help both urban and rural communities across California restore watersheds, recover endangered species, and increase climate change resiliency. Kate Lundquist and Brock Dolman of the “Bring Back the Beaver” campaign will share recent findings in their research evaluating the historic range of beaver in California and how you can contribute to the Bring Back the Beaver campaign.

Kate Lundquist co-directs the Occidental Arts & Ecology Center’s WATER Institute and the Bring Back the Beaver Campaign in Sonoma County, California. Kate is a conservationist, educator, ecological artist and wildland tender. She collaborates with landowners, communities, conservation organizations and resource agencies to uncover obstacles, identify strategic solutions, and generate restoration recommendations to assure healthy watersheds, water security, listed species recovery and climate change resiliency. In addition to providing species management consultations, Kate gives presentations across the west on the importance of beaver stewardship to watershed restoration.

Brock Dolman is a co-founder of the Sonoma County based Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, where he co-directs with Kate Lundquist the WATER Institute’s Bring Back the Beaver Campaign. He is a wildlife biologist and watershed ecologist who has been actively promoting the idea of Rewilding Beaver in California since the early 2000’s. He was given Salmonid Restoration Federation’s coveted Golden Pipe Award in 2012 for his leading role as a proponent of "working with beavers" to restore native salmon habitat.
