The Beaver Believers: A Benefit for Great Old Broads for Wilderness
Thursday, October 15th at 6:00 PM (MST)
Join us for a virtual screening of the award-winning feature documentary The Beaver Believers, hosted by filmmaker Sarah Koenigsberg and featuring Broads board member Mary O’Brien, to benefit Great Old Broads for Wilderness on Thursday, October 15th at 6:00 PM (MST).
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Broads’ innovative Climate Education and Stewardship Program, which aims to build climate resiliency through public lands education, stewardship, and public engagement.
The Beaver Believers is the urgent yet whimsical story of an unlikely cadre of activists—a biologist, a hydrologist, a botanist, an ecologist, a psychologist, and a hairdresser—working together to restore the industrious and ingenious North American Beaver to the watersheds of the American West.
As a keystone species, beavers help create the biodiversity, complexity, and resiliency our watersheds need to absorb the impacts of climate change. Beavers can do much of the work for us—but only if we can find the humility to trust the restorative power of nature and our own ability to play a positive role within it.
The 60-minute film will be followed by a 30-minute discussion and Q&A with filmmaker Sarah Koenigsberg and one of the film’s beaver experts, Mary O’Brien. Mary is a renowned botanist and conservationist, and the current Utah Forests Program Director for Grand Canyon Trust.
