|Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff|
On Friday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m. the Adopt A Stream Foundation and Snohomish County Parks & Recreation are teaming up with Snohomish County Surface Water Management to present a free showing of the IMAX movie Beavers on the Northwest Stream Center’s big screen in Snohomish County’s McCollum Park (600 - 128th Street SE, Everett, WA 98208).
“The whole family will enjoy Beavers,” says Adopt A Stream Foundation Director Tom Murdoch. “Everyone will be able to take a virtual swim with beavers and experience the beautiful
underwater habitat of one of natures greatest engineers.”
This short (31 minute) movie is set in pristine forest and lakes that are in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The film follows the lives of a family of beavers. You will be able to watch baby beavers (kits) grow, play, and, along with their parents, transform the world around them.
This movie has played to over 14 million viewers and delighted audiences all over the world. Sammy the Salmon will introduce the film by explaining the benefits that beavers provide to salmon, trout, and a variety of wildlife. After the movie, Murdoch will answer questions from the audience about beaver habits and their habitat requirements, and share a few of his experiences with North America’s biggest rodent. This event is FREE. However, you must call (425) 316-8592 to reserve a seat.
