6th Annual Outdoor Film & Poetry Reading
August 14, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PMFREE
Come enjoy an Applegate summer evening with The Applegate Partnership and Watershed Council for an outdoor screening of the film The Beaver Believers along with a poetry reading by the Applegate Poetry Association at Red Lily Vineyards, 11777 Highway 238 in the Applegate Valley. Free Admission.
The Beaver Believers is the urgent yet whimsical story of an unlikely cadre of activists who share a common vision: restoring the North American Beaver, that most industrious, ingenious, bucktoothed engineer, to the watersheds of the arid West. The Beaver Believers encourage us to embrace a new paradigm for managing our western lands, one that seeks to partner with the natural world rather than overpower it. As a keystone species, beaver enrich their ecosystems, creating the complexity and resiliency our watersheds need to absorb the impacts of climate change. Beavers can show us the way and even do much of the work for us, if only we can find the humility to trust in the restorative power of nature and our own ability to play a positive role within it. Shot in 8 western US states, Mexico, and Canada, through desert drought, raging wild fires, spring floods, and wetland tranquility, this film will change the way you think about climate change and inspire you to take a bite out of the challenges we face, one stick at a time.
The film will be introduced with a brief talk on beavers in the Applegate from Jakob Shockey, beaver expert and wildlife biologist with Applegate Partnership & Watershed Council.
The Applegate Poets will start the evening by reading poems based on the ideas and themes explored in the film presentation. Food and beverages provided by Red Lily will be available for purchase.
