Southeast Alaska is a place filled with natural wonder and beauty of thick old-growth stands of the Tongass National Forest below snow-tipped peaks. Join us to get inspired by this special place and be the first in Seattle to see SEACC's new film, Irreparable Harm about Hawk Inlet on Admiralty Island and the Tlingit community of Angoon. Angoon has been sustained by food gathered from the sea for thousands of years. Just thirty miles north of Angoon is the Greens Creek Mine, one of the largest silver producing mine in the world, and the only one to operate in a national monument. Learn about the research that SEACC, Alaska Native groups, and other conservation groups are doing to investigate the potential harm to the inlet, marine life, and Angoon.
After the film, SEACC's Executive Director Meredith Trainor will talk about the issue of mining in Southeast Alaska and how you can get involved.
Doors open at 6:30, the program starts at 7:00.
We will also be joined by our friends at the Methow Valley Headwaters Campaign who will be showing their film, Methow Headwaters: Too Special to Mine -- A powerful story of community voices coming together to share why their home, the Methow Valley in the heart of the North Cascades in Washington state, is too special to mine.
Food and drinks will be available to enjoy as we celebrate two places we all love, Southeast Alaska and Washington.
Hope to see you there!
