I am writing because you’ve expressed support for the Martinez Beavers in the past. The City of Martinez is looking for suggestions to name the park next to the beaver dam and the strip along the creek where they live.
With 2000 people visiting the park for the beaver festival over the last three years, and nightly visits from curious on-lookers, “Beaver Park” seems a natural choice to me. The sad event of mom beaver’s death would be an excellent opportunity to remember her important role in the visibility of this town in choosing a name.
Whatever final name is selected, we think it’s important that the voices of beaver supporters are heard, and I wanted to encourage you to make your own nomination by e-mailing your park name suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is the link to the Martinez Gazette article and my recent post about the issue.

All three kits are doing well, and the two year old is seen nightly caring for them. The night this photo (see above) was taken, the beavers were visited and sketched by author-artist-naturalist John Muir Laws. His illustrations will appear in the October issue of Bay Nature. Make sure you check it out!

I think “Beaver Park” would be a perfect name!
Anyone else who wants to pick a name, please e-mail your name idea to email@example.com. Thanks! /Gary
