In Celebration of Earth Day, the Town of Vail will be hosting a free public screening of “Watershed, Exploring a New Water Ethic For the West” at the Lionshead Welcome Center at noon on Thursday, April 21.
Produced and narrated by Robert Redford, “Watershed” examines threats to the Colorado River and looks at solutions to water supply issues in the west. The hour-long documentary explores stories of people connected to the river from its headwaters in Northern Colorado to those dependent on the river’s water in Los Angeles.
A free Moe’s BBQ lunch will be provided and a post-screening discussion led by the Eagle River Watershed Council will follow to discuss how Gore Creek and the Eagle River fit into the larger Colorado River Watershed and face similar issues.
Space is limited to 60; please RSVP to ensure a seat. Donations for the Eagle River Watershed Council are appreciated but not required. Representatives from Walking Mountains Science Center will also be in attendance to share information about their programs.
To RSVP, contact Mark Hoblitzell
, the town’s environmental sustainability coordinator, by April 19. For additional details, call 970-479-2333.
