How can humans see beaver's re-engineering of de-watered, straightened, and incised rivers as a welcome transgression, and to transform the Anthropocene discipline of engineering in their model? Like transgender becoming, transmogrifying the figure of the engineer will be an enfolding into the watershed bodies that we are already living in and influencing. Like trans politics or any politics, this transformation is a collective endeavor that takes place in a social field. An emerging view of healthy streams as dynamic and entangled systems is a sign that changes in hydrological worldviews is underway. This change in worldview comes from coming face to face with beaver through these collaborations. Singing together with beaver characters may also bring about this change. What singing together does involves all singers in enacting an embodied world-to-come, just as changing name and gender pronoun and presentation in the company of queer and trans others is a crucial step in bringing about a trans persons' hoped for being in the world.
