Leave it to Beaver at Effie Yeaw Nature Center
Saturday, February 2, 10:30am, Effie Year Nature Center, no cover
The beaver is a majestic creature—majestically awesome, that is. Apart from being native to the United States, including most of California, the North American beaver can weigh more than 70 pounds, secretes a substance called castoreum that smells like vanilla and has been used in food and perfume for years and has valves to keep water out of its nose and ears. Take a walk at Effie Yeaw and look for signs of the beaver—a truly remarkable animal. 2850 San Lorenza Way in Carmichael, sacnaturecenter.net/events/weekend-programs.
