The theme of this Film night is “It’s Our Water”. This will be our third presentation of environmentally thought-provoking videos in our Watershed Film Series. Instead of one long film, the program includes four snappy videos – (less than 5-8 minutes each) covering issues from litter to bottled water. We include brief presentations about tap water in Bryson City and Sylva, and offer everyone a water taste test. Our local drinking water supply from non Tuckasegee river sources is a good-water-news story in the midst of challenging issues of nearby Tuckasegee river water, including unsightly litter, local instances of bacterial pollutions, and muddy water problems due to erosion that harm fish and insect populations.

At the end of the films and related discussion, we’ll hold a short WATR business meeting where your input is valued.
