Celebrating How We Experience and Sustain our Watersheds Through Film
The Stories Of Our Watersheds film event features some amazing short films, an opportunity to meet with filmmakers and organizations representing the films, as well as a chance to win some great door prizes.

The films selected for this event represent a diverse set of rivers and watersheds from across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Selected films share stories from a variety of conservation organizations, tribes, watershed councils, agencies, filmmakers, as well as people simply enjoying their rivers and lakes.

Screenings of the selected films are currently scheduled in both Portland and Seattle with additional potential screenings in the works. The Portland and Seattle events will occur on October 3rd.
