It’s International Beaver Day!
We at WMG couldn’t be more excited because we work in two international watersheds where beavers are a keystone species—the Santa Cruz and San Pedro River watersheds. Western watersheds and desert rivers have been drying up for the last 100 years, but beavers provide a powerful, nature-based solution to reverse that trend, even in the face of a warmer and drier climate.
Our goal is to raise $75,000 by midnight tonight. Will you make a gift and help us raise the final $11,800 needed?
You can get involved in three simple ways: 1) donate today to support our work, 2) attend our Beavers and Brews Binational Bash tonight to learn more, and 3) join our River Run Network to get involved with on-the-ground restoration efforts. Check out this video to learn more.
Tonight we’ll be livestreaming our Beavers & Brews Binational Bash on Youtube, starting at 6p.m., so tune in! We’ll also be unveiling two short videos by filmmaker Marcus De Leon on beavers in the borderlands. Simply subscribe to our YouTube channel to ensure you see all the latest beaver-related and other educational content.
Release the Beavers!
P.S. Don’t forget, Westbound is donating 10% of all proceeds today to WMG. Be sure to stop by for a drink, donate, and say hello to some friends between 5-9p.m. before tuning in to the event.
