Earth Day Community Event

Pony Creek pedestrian bridge, behind North Bend Schools

Come join the Coos Watershed community for an Earth Day event to restore riparian habitat along Pony Creek. Students, families, and individuals of all ages are invited to help plant trees, care for existing native plantings, pull invasive species, and remove litter. Volunteers will learn about watershed restoration, stormwater issues, and the urban wetland habitat at Pony Creek. Our efforts will help improve this site where the local Cape Arago Audubon Society has been focusing its restoration activities.

"Chasing Ice" Film Screening
April 22, 2013, 7:00 PM
SWOCC Hales Center for the Performing Arts
Follow the event on Facebook!

Acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change and a cynic about the nature of academic research. But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. In Chasing Ice, Balog deploys revolutionary time lapse cameras to capture a multiyear record of the world's changing glaciers. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Traveling with a team of young adventurers across the brutal Arctic, Balog risks his career and his wellbeing in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. As the debate polarizes America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Chasing Ice depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to deliver fragile hope to our carbon powered planet.
