Santa Barbara DamNation Screening
SAVE THE DATE!
Join Los Padres ForestWatch for our screening of the new award-winning Patagonia film DamNation on Saturday, September 20 2014 at the New Vic Theatre in Santa Barbara! This powerful film odyssey explores the evolution of Americans’ views of dams, the politics of removing obsolete dams, and how once-dammed rivers can bound back to life, giving wild salmon and steelhead the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access.
