A Dam Good Talk: Conversation with Leila Philip, Author of Beaverland

February 8   |   5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Join us for an engaging evening at Wesleyan RJ Julia Bookstore on Thursday, February 8, 2024, at 5 p.m. ET, as we delve into the fascinating world of North America’s largest rodent with Leila Philip, the acclaimed author of “BEAVERLAND: How One Weird Rodent Made America.”

Leila Philip will be in conversation with CLCC Deputy Director, Aaron Lefland, sharing insights and stories that highlight the beaver’s significant impact on American history, ecology, and landscape. This event is not just a book talk; it’s a chance to explore the intricate connections between our environment and history through the lens of a creature that has shaped the continent in profound ways.

Co-sponsored by the Connecticut Land Conservation Council and our friends at the Middlesex Land Trust, this event promises to be a thought-provoking discussion that will deepen your appreciation of the natural world and our place within it. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a new perspective on an animal that has been both revered and reviled, and to understand the role conservation plays in protecting nature’s iconic engineers.

This event is free, and no registration is needed. We look forward to seeing you there!
