Environmental Film: A River Between Us
Tuesday, March 7: 7pm

“A River Between Us” documents the largest river restoration project in American history. Nearly 300 miles in length, flowing from southern Oregon to northern California, the vast communities of the Klamath River have been feuding over its water for generations, and as a result, bad blood has polluted their river and their relationships equally.

Balancing the sheer beauty of the river’s surface with its underlying ills of injustice and inequality, the film focuses on the personal stories of a group of individuals who finally chose to put the past behind them and came together to create a historic water rights compromise for the good of all.
Sponsored by Trout Unlimited, the film is part of the Wenatchee Valley Environmental Film Series. A $5 donation is requested. Series sponsors are The Trust for Public Land, Chelan-Douglas Land Trust and Wenatchee River Institute. A no-host bar and small snacks are available.
