We can only hope all those people enjoyed their beaver hats and coats.  Because decimating the beaver population altered landscapes all over the world. 

How different might our warming world be if we brought beavers back to our ecosystems?  This is a question considered by the film "Beaver Believers," a centerpiece of the Siskiyou Film Fest, coming to Grants Pass on Sunday (February 9th).  Three guests join us to talk about the film and the issue: Jakob Shockey of The Beaver Coalition, Allee Gustafson of Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center, and film producer Sarah Koenigsberg.
