Beavers in the Monument – Friday Night Talk

July 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

Free

Could beavers be our ally in increasing the function and resiliency of aquatic habitat in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument?

Jakob Shockey will present a strategic plan for working toward more beavers in the Monument, with the ability to positively impact the hydrology, biology and biodiversity of its wet ecosystems. But where are the beavers and what they are doing? Jakob will also introduce a new program for volunteer creek-explorers to find and record data on beavers that will directly impact future restoration work.

Jakob Shockey is a human, father, and husband who values community, truth, awareness, and grace. He works primarily with beavers and people, focusing on restoration of the natural processes that create and maintain resilient habitat, its wildlife, and the complex interrelationship with humans. He has been working professionally in Oregon’s streams, rivers and wetlands for over a decade. He cofounded and is the Executive Director for Project Beaver, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering humans to partner with beavers. Jakob is also the foremost authority in mitigating conflicts between beaver habitat and human infrastructure in Oregon through his company, Beaver State Wildlife Solutions. He has published research on the endangered Pygmy Three-toed Sloth of Panama, and worked for Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, the Bureau of Land Management, and the Applegate Partnership. Sings to himself, loves flying and can’t spell.
