Join NMRWA staff for an educational walk with urban beaver expert Joe Berg of BioHabitats.
A bit about Joe:
Joe is an ecosystems ecologist with more than 35 years experience in the assessment and analysis
of natural resources; development, preparation, and implementation of restoration plans; and the
range of studies, documentation and permitting experience required. The focus of his efforts
have been understanding historical landscape ecology to support the restoration of integrated
stream, wetland and floodplain functions as a means to deliver ecosystem services to society,
increase natural capital, and integrate local community needs with an appreciation of natural
resource values. He is the Practice Leader for Ecological Restoration for Biohabitats, Inc.. Joe is a member of
several other professional associations, including the Society for Ecological Restoration, Society
of Wetland Scientists, Ecological Society of America, American Ecological Engineering Society,
American Water Resources Association, Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation, and the
Association of State Wetland Managers.
Together we will walk around the restoration area, talk about the natural history of the American Beaver, and the ways they interact with the urban landscape. If we are lucky we might even get a look at our favorite stream resident!
COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place. All attendees must wear a mask or fabric face covering with both nose and chin covered. We will also be practicing social distancing.
It is possible we will go off-trail, so please wear appropriate footwear that you don’t mind getting muddy.
Note: Donations will be accepted at the time of the event. If you are able to contribute to help off-set the cost of hosting our out-of-town expert, it would be appreciated!
This event is fully booked.
