The School of Natural Resources is hosting its first documentary movie night featuring the film “DamNation.” The free event is open to the public.

The film, a 2014 advocacy documentary, is about the changing attitudes concerning the large system of dams in the United States. It highlights dam removal stories, but also examines conservation questions about river health balanced against power, irrigation and shipping needs.

A panel discussion with SNR natural resource faculty, including Steve Thomas, a river and stream ecologist, will follow the viewing. People will be invited to explore deeper the topic of the documentary, including the positive or negative consequences of dams, and will be asked to examine any biases or inaccuracies presented in the film.

“Some call it a movement, others call it a generational shift in values,” it states. “‘DamNation’ documents both — and the undeniable momentum behind river restoration that has begun to take hold in our country.”

Snacks will be available for purchase, and parking will be provided in Hardin Hall parking lot. The event is sponsored by the SNR Community Engagement Committee.
