This virtual event will highlight how science storytelling can be used to engage communities in watershed work and share scientific information with broader audiences. We will screen the short film “A Living River” by writer, filmmaker and adventurer, Jon Bowermaster, followed by a panel discussion on water science and storytelling.
“A Living River” describes the incredible web of life in the Hudson River, despite its polluted reputation. From the tiny Glass Eels to the massive 14-foot-long Atlantic Sturgeon, the Hudson River is teeming with life.
Our panelists include filmmaker Jon Bowermaster, Kathy High (NATURE Lab Coordinator at The Sanctuary for Independent Media), Will Lytle (Thorneater Comics), Branda Miller (Arts and Education Coordinator at The Sanctuary for Independent Media), and Anne Toomey (Assistant Professor at Pace University).
Additional panelists to be announced!
