September 29 Nature’s Greatest Architects? Rev. Steven Epperson
We celebrate BC/World River’s Day by paying our respects to Canada’s official emblem and symbol of our nation’s sovereignty—Castor canadensis: the beaver. We may think they’re just cute (or a nuisance), but the fact is beavers sculpted our landscapes and provided flourishing habitat to myriad life forms; they are one of Nature’s keystone species. Hounded to near extinction at the end of the 19th century, they’re making a significant comeback and we’ll explore just why that’s so important.
