Free film lets viewers experience real life of a beaver family

This could be one of the best dam movies you'll ever see.
The Adopt A Stream Foundation and Snohomish County Parks and Recreation are partnering to present the IMAX movie "Beavers" on Friday in Everett.
This is a free showing and a movie the whole family can watch and learn from.
"Beavers" is short, 31 minutes, taking viewers into the real-time world of a beaver family.
The story is set in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains with pristine scenery of forests and lakes.
The stars of the film are a family of beavers, and you will watch as baby beavers, or kits, grow and play. You will see how the beavers transform the world around them by cutting down trees and making dams.
"The whole family will be able to take a virtual swim with beavers and experience the beautiful underwater habitat of one of nature's greatest engineers," said Tom Murdoch, Adopt A Stream Foundation director.
As part of the presentation, "Sammy the Salmon" will introduce the film by explaining to the audience the benefits that beavers provide to salmon, trout and other wildlife.
Murdoch also will answer questions about beavers after the movie and share a few of his experiences with North America's biggest rodent.
"Beavers" is at 7 p.m. Friday at the NW Stream Center at Snohomish County's McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett.
Though the movie is free, you must reserve a seat by calling 425-316-8592. To learn about other Streamkeeper Academy events at the Northwest Stream Center go to the Adopt A Stream Foundation website at www.streamkeeper.org.
