Free Film Screening: DamNation


This event is at capacity. Available seats will be released 5 minutes before start time.

This powerful film odyssey across America explores the change in our national attitude from pride in dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds..

The post film Q&A will be led by John Sabo, a Senior Sustainability Scientist at the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability.
