Conservation Spotlight: Jakob Shockey on Beavers

March 20 @ 8:00 am - 8:30 am

On this episode, we will learn all about our Oregon state mammal, the beaver, with Project Beaver. We chat with Jakob Shockey, Executive Director of project beaver, an organization focused on protecting and coexisting with beavers. During this episode, Jakob teaches us about the history of beaver in the Willamette Valley, their importance to watershed health, and how humans can live with them in harmony.  an image of a beaver swimming in water with cattails is the background and in foreground an image of Jakob Shockey leaning, with curly light brown hair, an advertisement for the Conservation Spotlight interview for March 2024 with Jakob Shockey of the Beaver Project who will discuss beavers - the ecological engineers on KMUZ.
