Since our first conference in 2010 we have focused on the unique virtues of beaver ecology and its critical roll in the natural world. Previous conferences have centered on benefits to water supplies, habitat recovery, species recovery, the science of beaver ecology, the socio/political influences that the resurgence of life that beaver bring. More topics than can be enumerated here.

This year’s theme is “The Path Forward”. Tremendous strides have been made in our societal appreciation of beaver as a keystone species. Momentum has been building academically and culturally. Bringing together those who have moved this progress forward for the purpose of synthesizing their expertise is the goal of this gathering. These conferences have been a catalyst of networking, inspiration and celebration. Come and join us.
