Heidi Perryman formed “Worth A Dam” to defend the Martinez beavers (www.martinezbeavers.org). Since 2008, she has organized an annual beaver festival that has inspired similar efforts in five states and Canada. The story appeared in Ranger Rick Magazine. As California faces more drought years, Heidi believes it is more important than ever to coexist with these important “water savers.” You can read more about the Martinez beavers in Ben Goldfarb’s new book Eager: The Secret, Surprising Lives of Beavers and Why They Matter.
