Award-Winning ‘Red Gold’ Screening Today
The Oceans, Coasts, and Watersheds Project of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law program, along with Land Air Water, will be screening the award-winning documentary “Red Gold” at 6:00 p.m. Thursday, April 22, in Knight Law Center 175.
“Red Gold” examines Bristol Bay, Alaska, the world’s largest commercial salmon fishery, which is under pressure to develop one of the world’s largest hardrock mines in the headwaters of Bristol Bay. This proposed open-pit mining poses several threats to the people who live in this remote region.
Those interested in attending should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets for this event are $3 at the door for the general public, and free for UO students. A reception at Agate Alley Bistro will follow the screening.
