Bringing Beavers Back to the Cross Conservation Area

Thanks to recent grants from Alberta Ecotrust, theĀ Alberta Conservation Association and the Land Stewardship Centre, the Miistakis Institute, in partnership with the Ann and Sandy Cross Conservation Area, theĀ Calgary Science School and Cows and Fish are working on an innovative project to re-introduce beavers to the Cross Conservation Area. This project will demonstrate how beavers have traditionally provided an important role in ecosystem health through the provision of healthy wetlands. This project will serve as a model for reintroducing beavers to riparian areas and the resulting benefits to watersheds. Stay tuned for project updates and information on how to get involved.
