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.
If we are having intermittent drizzle we are on. If we have relentless downpour then we are off. Our chapter will be there either way at 9:00 AM and cleanup until 11:00. All participants under the age of 18 will need to bring a waiver sign in sheet signed by their parent/guardian, a waiver sign in sheet can be found here under the Beach Cleanups tab.
