Join the Worcester Chapter to hear a presentation by Ben Goldfarb who is the author of Eager: Secret Life of Beavers. His work has appeared in publications including the Atlantic, Science, Orion Magazine, and the Washington Post. Environmental journalist Ben Goldfarb reveals that our modern conception of a healthy ecosystem is wrong, distorted by the fur trade that once trapped out millions of beavers from North America's waterways. The consequences of losing beavers were profound: ponds drained, wetlands dried up, and species from salmon to swans lost vital habitat. In his talk, Ben will discuss the history of this world-changing species; how beavers can help us fight drought, flooding, wildfire, and climate change; and how we can coexist with this important but challenging species.
