On this international day of action, volunteers are needed to join The Watershed Project and our partners to remove massive amounts of debris that accumulate on our beaches and inland shorelines. Together, we can help protect marine habitat! Last year, nearly 72,000 volunteers removed over 800,000 pounds of debris from the beaches and creeks of California. Bring your families and friends to one of many Bay Area locations.

Film Screening: The Shame of Point Reyes

The Shame of Point Reyes:

A Bay Area nature enthusiast unintentionally discovers the political power of Marin’s ranching community and the atrocities against wildlife and the environment they’ve been committing within a national seashore, all while profiting on the public’s dime. An eye-opening documentary featuring stunning footage from Point Reyes National Seashore.

The public comment period regarding the park service’s new management plan is scheduled for this summer, making this a timely film. Considering the history of mismanagement it is expected that public outrage may be the only way to save the seashore.

You can learn more about the film and filmmaker by visiting the official site by clicking here.

A Carbon-Neutral Future: Strategies for a Stable Climate

Our best chance to minimize the effects of climate change is to be “carbon-neutral” by 2045. Since 2006, California has demonstrated how governments can encourage innovation and gradually reduce emissions without harming the economy. In collaboration with other sub-nations and nation, policies and innovations have been shared around the world. In the coming decade, additional strategies will be needed in order to both reduce emissions at a faster rate and start taking more carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.

Person of the Planet Film Series: Woman at War

Halla is a fifty-year-old independent woman. But behind the scenes of a quiet routine, she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. Known to others only by her alias "The Woman of the Mountain," Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminum industry. As Halla's actions grow bolder, from petty vandalism to outright industrial sabotage, she succeeds in pausing the negotiations between the Icelandic government and the corporation building a new aluminum smelter. But right as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that changes everything. Her application to adopt a child has finally been accepted and there is a little girl waiting for her in Ukraine. As Halla prepares to abandon her role as saboteur and savior of the Highlands to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother, she decides to plot one final attack to deal the aluminum industry a crippling blow.
