Families may view a free showing of the IMAX movie “Beavers” at 7 p.m. Friday at the Northwest Stream Center at McCollum Park, 600 128th Street SE, Everett.

The film is set in a pristine forest in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and follows the lives of a family of beavers as they grow, play and build.

Beavers are now found in streams in urban areas including Everett. Before the film, a presentation is planned about why beavers are great for trout and salmon.

Space is limited; you must reserve a seat in advance by calling 425-316-8592.
