The Washington Native Plant Society is sponsoring a showing of Voices of the Strait, a documentary film and discussion by Al Bergstein, Tuesday, March 15, 2011 7:00 pm, Natural History Exhibit building PTMSC . Also at the showing will be Joanne Hoemueller, the Puget Sound Partnership Eco-Net coordinator for the Olympic Peninsula.
What was it like to grow up on the Olympic Peninsula in the early to middle part of the last century, a place that had so many fish the usual joke was that you could walk across the river on the backs of the fish? What have we lost, how did we lose it, and what should be done about restoring it?
Voices of the Strait, attempts to answer these questions by talking to a wide variety of people, from mill workers, fishermen, and tribal members, to name a few. This video by Port Townsend producer/director Al Bergstein (and editor of this news blog) and assisted by long time Port Angeles resident Betsy Wharton, will be shown as part of our March program. Al will follow up with a Q&A and discussion session. “Although this video is short it has the impact to drive a new conversation about restoring the body of water that sustains the North Olympic Peninsula” – Peninsula Daily News.
