Program Night Schedule
"Disruption: Climate. Change." - The Film
Tuesday, October 14
Rising sea levels. Extreme weather. Flooding. Ocean acidification. Droughts. Heat waves. The People’s Climate March was just a beginning. WE are the generation that needs to act, now.
Whether you’ve seen the film "Disruption: Climate. Change." or not, you’ll want to join us for this viewing and conversation about how we move climate change action forward.
"GMO OMG" - The Film
Saturday, Oct. 18, 2:00 PM, Brooks Room, Bend Library Downtown
We are part of the largest biological experiment ever conducted on human beings, called GMOs. As a young father journeys to find out how GMOs affect his children and the health of the planet, he wonders if it’s possible to change the direction of our food system.
Follow Jeremy Siefert as he travels the country, kids in tow, even to Monsanto headquarters in his quest for answers about how we feed ourselves. Will Big Ag/Big Chemical continue to gain control of and alter nature’s inheritance, seeds? Because we want to know, what’s on our dinner plate? How was it grown? Free showing!
Our Wild Ones: Oregon’s Amazing Wild Rivers - by Tim Palmer
Tuesday, Oct. 30, 6:30 pm - Gathering, 7:00 pm - Program, Audubon Room, Environmental Center, 16 NW Kansas, Bend
Wild Rivers have their own vital energy and personality and are stunningly captured by Port Orford, Oregon photographer and author Tim Palmer. He is well known for his beautiful photos, books, stories of river adventure, and insights about the problems and promise of free-flowing waters.
Tim Palmer has explored, photographed and written about rivers for 40 years. Paddler Magazine named him among the “10 greatest river conservationists of our time” and “one of the 100 greatest paddlers of the past century.” His honors include the National Outdoor Book Award, Lifetime Achievement Award from American Rivers, and Conservation Achievement Award from the National Wildlife Federation.
His presentation is made possible by a grant from the Sierra Club’s national Our Wild America Campaign in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Not to be missed!
