Film:
Join us this World Water Day for a screening of the award-winning documentary The Memory of Fish, followed by a moderated conversation with three local change-makers working to protect fresh water and wild salmon. The film offers a documentary portrait of the intertwined lives of Dick Goin and wild salmon, and the key role Dick played in a decades-long fight to free the Elwha River in Washington State. We will then be joined by Tanis Gower (Watershed Watch Salmon Society), Adam Olsen (MLA, Saanich North and the Islands), and Tom Rutherford (Cowichan Watershed Board) for a conversation on the B.C. context and opportunities to ensure rivers and wild salmon thrive into the future. Hosted by POLIS Project on Ecological Governance, Watershed Watch, Wigg Lab, Freshwater Alliance and the Center for Global Studies.
