“Beaver: Nuisance or Opportunity?” Talk by Sherri Tippie, of "Leave it to Beavers" fame at Alma Town Hall on March 16th at 7pm. Please note venue change - this event is not taking place at Beaver Ponds!
Sherri Tippie, the top live trapper of the beaver species in North America, rescues unwanted beavers in the Denver suburbs and then places them with farmers and beaver enthusiasts who eagerly provide new homes for them. Whether displaced from their pond, now part of a new housing development, or singled out for gnawing on trees at a golf course, Tippie has relocated over 1,000 beavers to date and her chief priority remains to keep families together. According to Tippie, “We’re asking so much of these animals and we’re displacing them. They’ve moved into a place where they should be and we don’t want them there. So if we’re going to mess around with them then we need to treat them as well as possible and then put them at a place where they can live out their lives.”
Please join us for this engaging and inspirational talk with Sherri at the Alma Town Hall! This event is free and open to the public.
