Humans aren’t the only ones with Journey Stories. April 7 is National Beaver Day. Did you know that our country’s largest rodent almost became extinct? There were up to 400 million beavers living in North America until the fur trade almost wiped them out. Join us as we tell the “tail” of the beaver’s rebound story and discover how their odyssey is important for healthy ecosystems. Then go for a short walk to see if we can find evidence of beavers shaping the island habitat.

Registration required by Friday, March 31: 815-886-1467.
