Where did all the beavers go? Join us in reading “Eager: The Surprising Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter” by environmental journalist Ben Goldfarb to find out what happened to the beavers and why that matters to our ecosystems. Get ready to learn all about trophic cascades and what a keystone species really is. Our book discussion is designed for adults only — but the reading guide included in the program cost will offer media suggestions and discussion questions suitable for children.
