Earth Day Film Screening: PBS Rachel Carson Documentary

Join the Environmental Resource Center (ERC) on Thursday, April 20 at 5:30pm at The Community Library for a showing of PBS’ newly released Rachel Carson documentary in honor of Earth Day.

Rachel Carson inspired the modern environmental movement through the publication of her 1962 book, “Silent Spring.” The book warned the American public of the impact of pesticides on the environment and unleashed an extraordinary national debate about science and safety. This 120-minute documentary provides an illuminating and inspiring portrait of a seminal figure whose writings changed the course of our nation and are still highly relevant today.

Before and after the film, ERC staff will be on hand to answer questions about its Pesticide Action program which is working to reduce the use of pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers in the Wood River Valley. Additionally, students from the Wood River High School’s W.A.T.E.R. Club (Environmental Club) will provide information on their current project which is focused on native plants and the protection of local pollinators.

For more information on this program, contact ERC’s Hadley DeBree (www.ercsv.org; 208.726.4333; hadley@ercsv.org).
