Today, April 7th, is International Beaver Day. launched in 2009 by Beavers: Wetlands & Wildllife (BWW), a non-profit organization.
The day celebrates the beaver’s environmental contributions and its important role in shaping landscapes.
The dams that beavers build create and restore wetlands. These ecosystems, in turn, protect and filter our drinking water, provide habitats for wildlife, store flood waters to reduce property damage and maintain surface water flow during droughts.
