In Focus: Saving Our Waters

  • Craftsbury Outdoor Center 535 Lost Nation Rd Craftsbury Common, VT 05827 USA (map)

Produced by Vermont PBS, Saving Our Waters is comprised of three thought-provoking short documentaries covering steps toward keeping our waterways clean; the impacts of phosphorus and other contaminants; and using the science behind the issues to derive solutions that have positive impact on our communities. Featuring interviews with scientists, citizens, farmers, business owners, and dozens of other stakeholders, the series creates a comprehensive look at the health of the entire watershed of the lake, which encompasses approximately 40% of the state. Saving Our Waters aims to examine the state of the Lake Champlain Basin today with an eye toward practical solutions to keeping Vermont’s waterways clean in an age of extreme weather events.

In Focus, presented in partnership with the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, is a new film series focusing on climate change. This winter we will screen three documentaries that address what is happening to Earth’s ice, snow and water as more of the polar ice caps melt and the weather patterns become more extreme. Local experts and community leaders facilitate post-film community conversations that provide the tools and understanding for how to create positive change in our community through education, outreach, and action.
