The beaver is arguably the most important animal in New York City history. There are two beavers on the city flag as well as other tributes all over town. New Yorkers hunted the beavers out of the area in the early 1800s. Over 200 years later, beavers have returned to the city’s only freshwater river, The Bronx River, which has undergone its own monumental cleanup and rebirth. This is a Zoom presentation that will be shown in the library or can be viewed at home. In-person: Limit of 40.
