Connecting Land and Water
Online Event
Monday 07:00 pm to 08:00 pm

Presented by Cows and Fish.

Join us in a screening of Connecting Land and Water: Stories from the Eastern Slopes, followed by a open discussion period with a panel of guests featured in the film. This film features inspiring stories of the people Cows and Fish has worked with, the land owners, user groups, and partner organizations, that have undertaken riparian stewardship projects in the Eastern Slopes. In a time when people are feeling particularly disconnected and polarized, we can look to water to connect us. Connecting Land and Water encourages the viewer to connect their identity-- who they think they are-- with their actions on the land and to connect the choices they make on the landscape to the impacts on our water.
