The Center’s newest documentary film focuses on three communities- Western North Carolina, East Tennessee, and South Florida and their historical connection to their rivers and streams, how that changed during the industrial age and the early heroes who rose to unite the community to stand up for their waterways.  Featured heroes include Wilma Dykeman, the savior of the French Broad River, the Dead Pigeon River Council who fought against Champion Paper’s destruction of the Pigeon River and Marjory Stoneman Douglas who led the fight to reclaim the Everglades against efforts to drain and pollute it. This is a general admission event. All tickets are $15. This is a ticket-less event. Your name will be at the reservations table at the door at the time of the event.

In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled for March 3 and your tickets will automatically apply for the new date.

Buy the DVD in advance with your reservation and get $5 off the DVD price.
