Betty Ford Alpine Gardens will be presenting Beaver Habits and Habitats, an intimate evening with Sherri Tippie on Thursday, Aug. 9, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Education Center in Vail.
Tippie has dedicated more than 30 years of her life to beavers. She is a self-taught live-trapper, relocator and passionate educator who promotes coexistence and nonlethal management strategies for the keystone species.
In 1986, Tippie founded Wildlife 2000, an organization dedicated to fostering a healthy coexistence between humans and beavers. A Denver resident, she is nationally recognized as an expert on beaver ecology in general and beaver live-trapping in particular. She has trapped and relocated more than 1,000 beavers over the decades.
