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

Happy International Beaver Day! On this day we celebrate one of Denver's most charismatic ecosystem engineers. Beavers do more than build dams across waterways, they create habitats for many animals that enjoy living along our River! So on this day, take a walk along your creek or river and see if you are lucky enough to catch a glimpse of these shy critters! It may be tough, as beavers are crepuscular- meaning they reserve their activity for dawn and dusk. Do you have a fun beaver fact to share with us?
Teaching about water and ecosystem resiliency with River Kerplunk! Thank you @cudenver for hosting over 350 students at their Sustainability Day! #denver #environmentaleducation #learning #sustainability
Street sweeping starts this month! Street sweepers pick up trash, plant debris, and sediment that would otherwise wash down storm drains and end up our urban waterways. Be sure to check street signs when parking.
