Topic: The Return of California’s Golden Beaver
Speakers: Greg and Alex Kerekez
Sacramento natives, Greg and Alexandria Kerekez spent the past 10 years in Silicon Valley helping to conserve threatened habitat and wildlife populations with documentary photography, education, and citizen science techniques. Their work aims to connect people to their environment and conserve California’s amazing ecologic diversity.
This January, they’ll present their experiences documenting The Return of California’s Golden Beaver. Historically, Beavers were almost extinct in California by the Gold Rush era. Today, they are returning to their ancient habitats, but not without controversy. Explore how these water saving critters benefit the environment and what we can do to support their restoration of California’s Ecosystems, and find a common ground.
In 2017, Greg and Alex returned to their hometown, Rancho Cordova, to start Rancho Roots Permaculture Farm. With their farming practices, they hope to provide examples of how to grow food sustainably. Creating bridges amongst neighbors using a combination of trade and market gardening is at the heart of their small business.
