Journey into the Natural World through fact-based imagination as you talk and travel with Mother Nature’s beaver. Follow the seasonal journey of a beaver family residing in the high Colorado Rocky Mountains to learn about the biology, habitat, and behavior of this hard-working, family-oriented mammal. Listen to the animal’s words to understand its role and contributions within the web of life. Whether it is rain-drenched locales or drought-stricken areas, the beaver has become nature’s engineer that has helped solve many ecosystem problems.
Then venture through Willow Creek and on Fern Ridge Lake to view Oregon’s mammals, birds, fish, butterflies, and native plants. Discover the fauna and flora residing in wetland, riparian, and wet-prairie ecosystems of the lower-altitude southern Willamette Valley of the Pacific Northwest. Then reflect on why our Natural World must be respected, protected, and preserved.
