Beavers are brilliant and persistent engineers. Why do they build dams? What is a beaver's life like? Learn how their activities conserve water, improve water quality, and even benefit the other wildlife around them. At this public presentation Wed., Aug. 19, 7 p.m. at the Camano Multipurpose Center, 141 N East Camano Drive (Blue Building), learn also how it is possible to peacefully live near beavers. Alex Pittman, Habitat Restoration Specialist for Snohomish Conservation District, will also show participants the beaver marsh across from CASA.  Pittman works on stream and wetland restoration projects in Western Washington and helps landowners with beaver issues. The Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks, hosts public presentations the third Wednesday of the month.  For information, call 360-387-2236, visit or email
