Please join us in exploring the Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests through the new feature documentary, The River Runs On. The hourlong screening will begin at 7pm with a Q&A following with the filmmaker, Garrett Martin. This is a free event with a suggested donation of $10 going towards the distribution expenses of the film. The event is sponsored by Blue Ridge Bartram Trail Conservancy who will be tabling at the event.
Synopsis: THE RIVER RUNS ON follows conservationists as they struggle to manage two of the most important national forests in America – the Pisgah and Nantahala. The film revolves around the release of the Pisgah-Nantahala Forest Plan as the US Forest Service decides how these two national forests are managed for the next twenty years. The result is a meditation on our relationship to nature, our role in managing lands and what it may mean for the future.
