Join Sammy the Salmon and Fred the Head for All About Beavers on Thursday August 16th, 2018 at 7pm at the Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County’s Mc Collum Park. Reservations are required by calling 425-316-8592; $5 Adopt A Stream Foundation member, $7 non-members.
Sammy the Salmon will introduce the show by describing how beaver ponds are great places for baby salmon and trout. Then the audience will enjoy the 31 minute IMAX movie BEAVERS and experience the rich aquatic habitat of one of natures greatest engineers. BEAVERS has played to over 14 million viewers and delighted audiences all over the world.
Set in the pristine forest and lakes in the hart of the Canadian Rocky Mountain, this very entertaining film follows the lives of a family of beavers as they grow, play and transform the worlds around them…these critters are amazing engineers!
At the end of the film, Fred the Head (the skull of a 69 lb. beaver shown above) will join Sammy the Salmon to answer questions about beaver habits and habitat requirements! That discussion will be interpreted by stream ecologist and big beaver fan Tom Murdoch.
This fast paced Thursday night event is fun for everyone from first graders to old gray beards!
