The Hemlock Wooly Adelgid: Film Screening and Q&A
May 2, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
MountainTrue’s Green Riverkeeper and the Hemlock Restoration Initiative will host a screening of the documentary The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid: A Film About the Loss of an Ecosystem at the Lanier Library in Tryon. The 30-minute long documentary was produced in 2016 by the Cayuga Lake Watershed Network and won the award for Best Appalachian Environment Film at the Boone Film Festival. The groups hope that screening the film will help increase public awareness and build momentum to save more hemlock trees.
After the featured film, the groups will screen a short, locally-produced documentary highlighting the efforts of the Paddlers Hemlock Health Action Taskforce (PHHAT) to save hemlocks locally in the Green River Gorge. For additional information on the project, please visit paddlersforhemlocks.com.
Admission to see the films is free, and the first film will begin at 6:00 p.m. The night will conclude with a Q&A with MountainTrue and Hemlock Restoration Initiative staff to contextualize the films and help the audience understand the next steps for action.
