What they find is truly shocking. Learn more at https://www.foodwastemovie.com/. Brought to you in partnership with the City of Edina's Energy and Environment Commission.

  • Beaver Believers

    The Beaver Believers is a feature documentary that tells the urgent yet whimsical story of an unlikely cadre of activists - a biologist, a hydrologist, a botanist, an ecologist, a psychologist, and a hairdresser - who share a common vision: restoring the North American Beaver, the most industrious, ingenious, bucktoothed little engineer, to the watersheds of the American West. The Beaver Believers encourage us to embrace a new paradigm for managing our western lands, one that seeks to partner with the natural world rather than overpower it. As a keystone species, beaver enrich their ecosystems, creating the biodiversity, complexity, and resiliency our watersheds need to absorb the impacts of climate change. Beavers can show us the way and do much of the work for us, if only we can find the humility to trust the restorative power of nature and our own ability to play a positive role within it. Shot in 8 western states, Mexico, and Canada, through desert drought, raging wild fires, forceful floods, and wetland tranquility, this film will change the way you think about climate change and inspire you to take a bite out of the challenges we face, one stick at a time.
