Women Working for the Wild Film Screening

January 21, 7pm
Presented by HRVRC & Crag Law Center
Suggested Donation $5

 

Join the Hood River Valley Residents Committee and the Crag Law Center for a special night of film celebrating Women Working for the Wild, featuring the premier of the film Mountain Maiden about Hood River conservation legend Kate McCarthy.

Kate lived at the foot of Mt. Hood and tirelessly advocated for the preservation of farmland, forestland, and water supplies.  Kate rallied people to the cause to fight off destination resorts that threatened the beautiful wild north side of Mt. Hood and stopped, the expansion of the Mt. Hood Meadows ski area to include overnight lodging in sensitive wetlands.  Kate studied alpine ecology. She wielded her camera, slide projector, and ability to turn a phrase to give voice to Mt. Hood’s fragile alpine environments and its thriving family farms in the Hood River valley below.  Kate played an important role in many conservation battles, including the establishment of the Columbia River Gorge.  She was a founder of not one but two conservation advocacy groups.  Mountain Maiden will be shown along with a selection of other awarding winning films about women working for the wild. More details to follow.

Doors at 6:30pm, films begin at 7pm. Run time for the program is approximately 90 minutes. Admission by suggested donation of $5 at door.
