Join us for an unforgettable evening discovering the secret world (and work) of beavers living throughout the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area. Join the Greenway Trust and beaver experts from Beavers Northwest, on a sunset tour of Tibbets Creek, complete with lake and river views, and active habitat restoration project work along the creek.

During the hike, participants will learn about the amazing habitats that beavers create and the numerous benefits of these ecosystems.
