Salmon Stories

Saturday, November 2, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.

Theatre on the Square

Tickets: $14
Join us for three Pacific Northwest Salmon Stories films:

Buried in Sawdust for 50 Years

The story begins in the 60s with a veneer making operation and the dumping of what eventually became a 60-foot-high pile of wood waste into a nearby estuary. Scientist discuss the vital roll estuaries play in making healthy, sustainable salmon runs possible, as well as the broader environmental implications of what was not an uncommon practice at that time. You will also witness how the rebirth of Salmon Creek Estuary unfolded through the help of scientists, a local nonprofit, and volunteers.

River as Spirit — Rebirth of the Elwha

This film is a meditation on the soul of the Elwha River and the people and salmon who have been a part of it for thousands of years. Just a week before the historic dam removal work officially began, filmmakers flew and filmed the length of the river, from its source high in the Olympic Mountains, to its mouth at the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Set to native language with English subtitles, music and poetry, this simple and profoundly beautiful film has proven mesmerizing to both tribal and non-tribal audiences alike.

Saving Puget Sound One Watershed at a Time

This film is an inspirational story of a Kitsap county community’s effort to preserve 40% of their watershed. This extraordinary and sustained effort will ensure that this natural treasure will be their legacy to the future of Puget Sound.

There will be a panel discussion following each short film.
