Green Screens: An Environmental Film Festival, Three Oaks, Michigan


Chikaming Open Lands and Fernwood Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve present DamNation

Thursday, July 30, 7:00pm
Vickers Theatre, Three Oaks, Michigan

Join us at Vickers Theatre for a screening of DamNation, a documentary which reveals the ecological cost of two centuries of American dam building, from degraded waterways to the loss of wildlife habitat. This powerful film odyssey across America 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 removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream, and where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access.

Seating is limited! Advance reservations recommended.

$10 per person, per film ( $8 for COL and/or Fernwood members), $15 per person, for both films [DamNation and More Than Honey (screens on August 1)] and reception ($12 for COL and/or Fernwood members).
