A Wild American Forest
a film about the Klamath Mountain Region

Thursday, December 6th
Arcata Playhouse, 7-9pm
Sliding scale admission $3-5

Join the Northcoast Environmental Center, the HSU Natural History Museum, and the California Native Plant Society for a showing of A Wild American Forest on Thursday, December 6, at the Arcata Playhouse!

The Klamath-Siskiyou eco-region is one of North America's richest ecological treasures. Straddling the border between California and Oregon, it is a wonderland of biodiversity and one of the world's most important temperate forest regions.

Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon narrates the remarkable, inspiring story of how a rugged pocket of America’s Pacific Northwest has endured 150 years of logging, mining, and dam-building to remain one of the largest strongholds of old-growth forest in the nation. Filmed in more than a dozen wilderness areas and national monuments, A Wild American Forest showcases the Klamath-Siskiyou’s natural splendor and vividly illustrates why this area is recognized as a globally significant bioregion.

In addition to the film screening, UC Davis ecologist Dr. Susan Harrison, whose research is featured in the film, will discuss her close connections to the Klamath Mountains.
