Monday, October 27th at 6 pm — The Northern Michigan Environmental Action Council (NMEAC) is sponsoring the showing of the film DAMNATION on Monday, October 27th at 6 pm at the State Theatre. The film presents the environmental impacts dams have on our nation’s rivers. Q&A with local natural resource pros following the film. Free. Donations will be accepted.
DamNation is a powerful film exploring 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. 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.
Please join us. Donations to NMEAC accepted
