Nature Matters: Collaborating with Beaver for a Resilient Future
March 4, 2021
Jakob Shockey has been working professionally in Oregon’s streams, rivers, and wetlands for over eight years. He is the co-founder and Executive Director of The Beaver Coalition, an organization working to empower humans to partner with beaver through education, science, advocacy, and process-based restoration. He owns Beaver State Wildlife Solutions, a company that specializes in addressing frustrating conflicts with wildlife in a new way. Join this talk to learn about the benefits of collaborating with beavers in ecological restoration.
This free event is online. The 7 p.m. presentation takes place March 11 online via Facebook Live on Fort George Brewery’s Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/FortGeorgeBrewery/
Jakob Shockey grew up in Oregon—on a farm in the Siskiyou Mountains—and pretends not to like using a computer. He lives with his wife and their three children on the same creek he grew up swimming in. He has published research on the endangered Pygmy Three-toed Sloth of Panama and has worked for Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, the Bureau of Land Management, and the Applegate Partnership. Shockey is a writer, hunter, paragliding pilot and fiddler.
Nature Matters, a lively conversation about the intersection of nature and culture, takes place on the second Thursday of each month from October through May. Nature Matters is hosted by Lewis and Clark National Historical Park in partnership with the North Coast Watershed Association, the Lewis & Clark National Park Association, and the Fort George Brewery + Public House.
