IMAX film peers inside beaver dam

The beavers are back.
Adopt A Stream Foundation and the Snohomish County Parks and Recreation Department are reshowing the IMAX movie on beavers, "The Biggest Dam Movie Ever."
This popular film follows a family of beavers in the heart of the pristine Canadian Rocky Mountains, capturing amazing footage of beavers creating a dam and growing up and living their lives.
"Everyone really enjoys hearing the baby beavers 'talk' with their parents and watching them grow into adults," said Adopt A Stream Foundation director Tom Murdoch.
After the movie, Murdoch will answer questions about beaver habits and habitat requirements in the area.
The beaver program kicks off with a presentation by "Sammy the Salmon," a six-foot-long talking salmon character.
Sammy will introduce the program by describing how beaver dams are good for salmon and trout. Sammy will show a short underwater viewing of the life cycle of salmon produced by Japan's Hokkaido Television and Broadcasting, according to press material.
The beavers program is at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Northwest Stream Center at McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett. The 31-minute movie is family friendly and geared for kids. The showing is free, but seating is limited. Reservations are required by calling 425-316-8592.
