The Noble Architect

Facilitator of rich ecosystems, benefactor of the past, builder of our future.
This sculpture honors the majestic beaver – called Ina (‘eena) by the Chinook – that once abundantly inhabited and thrived in this area.  Our beaver faces the rising sun looking for a day when humans and nature harmonize.
