The recently completed “Martinez Beavers” mural overlooking the footbridge near Creek Monkey Tap House on Escobar Street in downtown Martinez. The mural, commissioned by local beaver advocacy group Worth A Dam, began as a project to honor the memory of the Martinez beavers, who’d all but disappeared from local waters after several beaver deaths occurred last year. On May 2, 2016, however, a sighting took place and within several days, it was confirmed the beavers are back. Thus, the mural, completed by artist Mario Alfaro, is being hailed as the “Un-Memorial.” (JOHN GRUBKA / Courtesy)
