DamNation: Environmental Film and Discussion

Thursday, May 5th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room
DamNation movie poster
This film explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam owners, impacted communities, and politicians are now reevaluating the usefulness of certain dams and often advocating for decommissioning and removal. Some call it a movement, others call it a generational shift in values. DamNation documents both – and the undeniable momentum behind river restoration that has begun to take hold in our country. Introduction and moderated discussion hosted by Scott Gray and Sonya Wulff.
