Join the SKWC and the Red Hook Public Library for a free showing of the film Watershed Revolution on Thursday, April 21st, at 7 p.m.! The film will be screened at the Elmendorph Inn in Red Hook (about 30 minutes), followed by a discussion lead by Eli Deuker, Assistant Professor of Environmental and Urban Studies at Bard College, and Karen Schneller-McDonald, author of Connecting the Drops: A Citizen’s Guide to Protecting Water Resources.
Watershed Revolution tells the story of a community’s efforts to protect the Ventura River watershed in California. Many of the issues covered in the film are the same issues that we face with the Saw Kill. This film is an excellent introduction to what watersheds are, why they’re so important, and how the community can be involved. Appropriate for middle-school students and up.
