Join the River Run Network in Our First Binational Beaver Survey!

Historically, beavers played a key role in maintaining watershed health for the Santa Cruz and San Pedro Rivers before they were wiped out by fur trappers in the 1800’s. The beaver population made an initial comeback due to relocation efforts in 1999, and with education, community science, and advocacy, we can bring the beavers back and grow their impact to reach the River Run Network's 50-year vision of restoring southern Arizona’s creeks and rivers on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.

To help with this, River Run Network Program is hosting our first Binational Beaver Survey this fall! Sign up below to help us search for signs of beavers all while taking in the beautiful views the SPRNCA has to offer. You'll be part of a team in a binational effort to further understand beaver activity in southern Arizona and Sonora, Mexico. During these events, we will be hiking along and in the San Pedro River in search of beaver activity such as beaver dams, lodges, and chews. Your efforts will help us determine where and how many beavers are calling the San Pedro and its tributaries home!
