It is International beaver day and at the Greenway Foundation we are always excited to celebrate these environmental engineers! Our environmental education program’s mascot is even a beaver – and if you haven’t already met Chomper’s – he is a pretty cool beaver that does important things for wetland ecosystems like the South Platte River! To honor Beavers on this national holiday, here is some info on why beavers are so crucial to maintaining wetland ecosystem health throughout the South Platte River and why it is important they are protected! While beavers play a lot of important roles in ecosystems, one of the most important is that they are engineers!
Also don’t forget the month of April is all about giving SPREE! Help us educate more Denver Kids about cool creatures like beavers by donating here or look out for opportunities to volunteer at one of our upcoming events!
