Rivers Of Life: A Celebration of Restoration, Resilience and Recovery
Where: Minor Theatre, Arcata
When: December 8, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.
Why: Fundraiser for children’s watershed educational programs
Mad River Alliance is a community driven group working to protect clean local water and the ecological integrity of the Mad River watershed for the benefit of its human and natural communities.
Our Education Program is an important component of our success — we are always striving to inform our community about the vibrant resource the Mad River watershed provides. The Mad River is the source of drinking water for more than 88,000 Humboldt County residents, the source of life to the natural community, and by working together we can restore and recover this resilient river!
On December 8, Mad River Alliance will be presenting a film at the Minor Theater called “Rivers of Life — Resilience, Recovery, & Restoration.” This special film showing is a fundraising event dedicated to our Education Program and we need your help. Mad River Alliance is asking the community for silent auction donations and cash contributions to cover the event expenses and to ultimately raise funds for our Education Program. Your donation will be showcased and highlighted at the event for all to view.
The proceeds from the film showing will be used to bring students to the Mad River to learn about watershed ecology, stewardship, water safety, and teamwork. We are also developing a curriculum highlighting local watershed education for K-12 teachers to use in their classrooms. With your help, we’ll be able to provide other educational programs, including hosting community education events, eco tours, science walks, and water safety classes.
We look forward to collaborating with you for this extraordinary celebration of the Mad River watershed and her sister rivers. Thank you in advance for your time and contribution.
