Let's Celebrate!

You’ve heard of Smokey the Bear but are you ready for Smokey the Beaver? Please join the western South Dakota team on Tuesday, December 7 at 12:00 pm MT for a special presentation and part two of our annual gathering.

We’ll be joined by ecohydrology researcher Emily Fairfax, PhD., who will share her research with us on the beloved beaver! This timely presentation will uncover how nature’s engineers can not only stimulate the growth of riparian vegetation, but also how beaver dams can protect these areas from damage during wildfires. 

Grab your lunch, pull up a chair and join us as we learn more about these fascinating animals! 


Save your virtual seat now and register for our annual celebration. We can't wait to see you there!
