SOLD OUT: Film Screening: Expedition // Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
with Kristin Gates
Spend an evening in the Arctic Refuge. For five months, Kristin Gates and Jeremy La Zelle lived with the Gwich'in people, followed the Porcupine Caribou herd migration on foot, camped with Polar bears on the Arctic Ocean, and paddled 500 miles down the Porcupine River. This was all to document the wild Arctic ecosystem and the voices of the Gwich'in Nation who have been fighting for decades to protect their sacred land from resource development. Join the World Affairs Council of Maine, Maine Audubon and Natural Resources Council of Maine as we screen the film, hear from the filmmakers, and learn why the Arctic Refuge must be protected and preserved for all time.
Location: Maine Audubon, 20 Gilsland Farm Rd, Falmouth, ME 04105
Cost: $10 for members of WAC, Maine Audubon and NRCM; $15 for non-members
