You are invited to Estuary Movie Night at the Stan Hagen Theater, North Island College, admission by donation.
Project Watershed in conjunction with World Community will be presenting estuary focused movies and a short presentation on our own Courtenay River Estuary. The two movies that will be shown are a 5 min short on the Courtenay River Estuary and an hour segment on the fight to save the San Fransisco Estuary. The San Fransisco Estuary is the largest estuary in North America and was highly impacted by rapid development; much of the estuary was “lost” or severely degraded. Then a small group of dedicated people got together and changed its fate (savingthebay.org). With less obstacles in our way the Courtenay River Estuary can also become a shining example of people living in harmony with an important natural feature.
The Courtenay River Estuary is the heart of our community both physically, as it resembles a heart, and spiritually, as our beautiful geographic center. Along with the impressive Comox Glacier it frames our world. Come out for a movie night to be inspired and motivated to protect and restore it. If California can do the Comox Valley can do it!
