    Friday, November 14: Free Screening of DamNation, sponsored by AFS-UW and AWRA-UW

    Come to a free screening of the documentary film about dams' impact on the environment. From IMDB:

  • 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. 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. DamNation's majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.
  • Time: 6:00pm; Place: Rm. 102, Fisheries Science Building
