WILDLIFE EDUCATION – The third annual Picnic with the Beavers – an educational event especially geared to families — is set for Sunday (Sept. 11) starting at 1 p.m. at Liberty Lake County Park, sponsored by The Lands Council and the Coeur d’Alene Tribe.

Info: (509) 209-2851 or email aswan@landscouncil.org

Groups will rotate through three learning stations.

Read on for details.

Station 1

Wildlife Language activity with Raymond Brinkman of the Coeur D’Alene tribe. Learn the importance of watching changes in wildlife and nature. A fun, participation-based activity for kids!!

Station 2

Join “Team Beaver” and BiJay Adams of the Liberty Lake Sewer and Water district for a fun (and easy) hike to the beaver dams! Learn how beaver activity helps restore native plant species, filters water impurities, enhances wildlife viewing and more!

Station 3

Now that you’ve seen those beaver dams first-hand, take your shot at creating your very own - using edible materials! Use frosting as you would mud, or pretzel sticks as logs to build the ideal habitat for a beaver!
