Spotted by a 4th grader at Overland Pond Park, this beaver was up past its bedtime! Grateful it stuck around for 50 very respectful kiddos and SPREE staff. Some staff saw their very first beaver! What a great way to kick off our last week of field trips #phenology #wildcity #denver #beaver #citywildlife
