Tree Sitters Above the Brunette River

Wed, Sep 9, 2020 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm

Via Zoom, we’ll meet 3 tree sitters high above the Brunette River in their own video, followed by Q and A with a knowledgeable panel. We’ll also see the trailer for the prize winning film The Return, by Marina Dodis, documenting the restoration of the Brunette River, one of the few salmon bearing waterways in Metro Vancouver. Marina will be present as a panel member.
