Elwha Science for the Community 2015
November 19, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
For the first time since the dam removal, the Elwha Research Consortium and Peninsula College will host a special public event highlighting researchers and their scientific works since the removal of the Elwha River dams. WSG’s Coastal Hazards Specialist Ian Miller is a co-organizer of the event.
Members of the community will be able to see and discuss the river’s evolution as part of a community event associated with the 2015 Elwha River Science Symposium.
At 7 p.m. a screening of the award-winning documentary film, “The Return of the River,” will be shown, introduced by local filmmakers John Gussman and Jessica Plumb. The film documents the Elwha River dam removals, and recently won two awards at the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival. The film was recognized for Conservation Impact and received the Marian Zunz award for emerging filmmakers.
Following the film, a panel discussion will provide additional opportunity for the community to discuss the research and science associated with the groundbreaking dam removals.
