Beaver Restoration Feasibility: A Webinar for Olema
The following video is a recording of the informational webinar Brock Dolman and Kate Lundquist (Occidental Arts & Ecology Center WATER Institute Directors) gave on March 4, 2021 to those living and/or working in the Olema Creek watershed near Point Reyes National Seashore in California.
Co-hosted by the Environmental Action Committee and the Olema Association, webinar topics include the fascinating history, ecology and benefits of beaver in California and the initial results from the West Marin Beaver Restoration Feasibility Assessment Brock and Kate have been carrying out with the help of their Marin County based steering committee. The 45-minute presentation is followed by a question and answer session.
