Guess what? The Martinez beavers had a baby — a new kit!
Martinez Beavers: the next generation! a new beaver kit!
The above new beaver kit was seen by myself, Jon and Moses Silva at the footbridge, around 8 p.m. Sunday evening (July 1). The kit emerged three separate times including a tiny kit tail slap! We also heard him whine at an adult. Looks healthy and all the extended family seemed to be keeping an eye on it. Dad has moved with what appears to be a new mate into a bank location above the footbridge. Worth A Dam couldn’t be happier to know that our family is still going strong. Nearly two years to the day after mom died, life has officially gone on.

This seems like an appropriate time to print the press release I also just received from you. Yes, I know you need beaver-loving volunteers to help with your Beaver Festival 5 on Aug. 4.
OK, beaver-loving volunteers, time to step up!
Beaver Festival 5, on Aug. 5:
Beaver Festival 5 is right around the corner, and the good folks at Worth A Dam are hoping that volunteers will come forward again to lend a hand. Whether you’re a creative teen, a patient retiree, a handyman, a teacher, an artist, or someone good with crowds, this year’s festival will work even better if you’re part of it!
“Last year we had so many volunteers that everything came together easily!” the group’s leader, Heidi Perryman said. “This year, with 28 booths, 7 musical groups and a growing supply of interested attendees, everyone is hoping for another generous crew.” If you’re interested in helping out with the beaver festival, or finding more information go to http://www.martinezbeavers.org, or you can email Worth A Dam at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Heidi at 925-283-4499.
