The Beuvron is a river in central France that flows into the Center-Val de Loire region. It is 115.2 km long and flows into the Loire.
The river owes its name to the beavers that populated its banks in the Middle Ages and were called bièvres, from the Gallic bebron / bibron. The species, which gradually disappeared over the centuries, was reintroduced in the Beuvron basin in 1974.
