Environmental Film and Speaker Series: Canoeing the Vanishing Arctic
Join us for a Zoom presentation of “Canoeing the Vanishing Arctic: Down the Hood River to the Arctic Sound” on Tuesday, February 23 at 7 PM. This presentation by Andy Dappen details a canoe trip that local Wenatchee residents embarked on in order to explore the rapidly-changing Arctic. The presentation is highlighted by a reading of Paul Hessburg’s ballad-style poetry that distills the essence of the trip in a compact, entertaining, and emotional way accompanied by a slideshow of pictures from the trip.
Join us virtually for this presentation and Q&A Session on Tuesday, February 23 from 7 – 8 PM.
