A crazy idea? Not anymore

Over the last two years, the Institute has interviewed ranchers in New Mexico, Idaho and Nevada about how they discovered the benefits of having beaver on their land and how they are managing beaver.

Staff are presently scheduling additional screenings and workshops. Contact us to arrange a screening or workshop. The next scheduled screening is Nov 16 2017 at the Quivira Coalition Conference at 7:30 pm.

The full film is 55 minutes long and is not available online. The Institute is targeting this film to quality, not quantity, of viewers - in other words, managers of land and water. This quality-not-quantity approach would not be served by YouTube and the like. We also believe that the film is best understood when the audience has a chance to ask questions, raise concerns, and get honest answers. Using beaver successfully requires significant knowledge, but is worth the investment. Making the decision to remove beaver is also best supported by objective information.

In the meantime, you can view the film trailer below and donate here to help put this film in front of as many ranchers and other land managers as possible.
