In March 2020, the Beaver Institute and Ecotone, Inc. co-hosted the first international beaver conference near Baltimore, MD. It was a huge success. Now our second international Conference, BeaverCON 2022, will again be held near Baltimore, MD on June 14-16, 2022 (revised dates). The conference theme is “Building Climate Resilience: A Nature-Based Approach”

Why an In-Person Conference?
In an age where technology enables large groups to meet virtually, why host an in-person conference? The short answer is, an in-person conference offers benefits that virtual conferences cannot replicate. There is an energy and synergy that is created when like-minded people meet, greet, share and work together in-person. These benefits persist long after the in-person conference ends.
Advantages of an In-Person BeaverCON 2022 include:
Full registration fee refunds are available upon request if received 30 days or more before the event.
COVID-19 Statement (Updated 5/26/22)
The BeaverCON Team is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all attendees. Since we are still in the midst of a pandemic, even though the severity of most cases has dropped significantly, we request that all attendees adhere to current public health COVID-19 protocols. For many, this will be their first big public event since March 2020. So each individual at the conference needs to take appropriate measures to protect themselves and others. We will have masks and disinfectant on site and ask that you respect each others' comfort level.
Currently we urge all attendees to:
Please bring COVID test kits with you. Free tests are now available. Also, there are a number of testing sites within a 5-minute drive from the venue including two Walgreen’s and a CVS, as well as a number of local pharmacies. If you aren’t feeling well or have had a known contact with someone who is ill, we ask you that you test negative before participating in the conference.
We are fortunate to have a BeaverCON physician consultant in attendance to help ensure the safety of all participants, not just with COVID-19, but with any medical issues that may arise.
At the conference we will be diligent and nimble to the new reality we’re all living with, as our goal is to make BeaverCON 2022 a zero-transmission event. We call on every attendee to make this a priority as well. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
