Join us for our next discussion on Eager: The surprising, secret life of Beavers and why they matter by Ben Goldfarb. Environmental journalist, Ben Goldfarb, takes us on a journey across the United States and around the world to explore the impact that beavers have on wetland ecosystems. Delve into how historical exploitation and near extinction of this species has impacted our water resources and how restoration of these rodent ecosystem engineers can help us fight climate change. This book was the winner of the E.O. Wilson Literary Science award in 2019.
