Readers Mariana P. and Andrew Y. wrote to tell me that April 7 was International Beaver Day! Besides being cute, beavers play an important role in their environment. The dams they build store water and create wetlands. You can learn more at Beavers: Wetlands and Wildlife, and see more cute beavers at Bored Panda.
I’ll put this on my calendar so I don’t miss it next year.
