Castor Craft Collaborative

People increasingly recognize the benefits of partnering with beavers across the country (and the world) to address issues such as water quality, erosion, drought, wetland restoration, wildfire management, habitat and biodiversity loss, and more. My collaboration with castorids, however, is a creative one. I observe my favorite ecosystem engineers and collect the materials they no longer need. Then, with chewed sticks, bite-sized chips of discarded tree, and yarn, I make something that reminds me not of the value of beavers to humans, but of their resilient and unapologetically bold beaver souls. I hope my creations inspire others to #ThankABeaver too.
