Remembering the Exxon Valdez: 20 years later.By eflaherty | March 1st, 2009 | Category: Get Involved |
An event is coming up at the flagship Rei to remember the tragedy of the Exxon Valdez, the worst oil spill in America’s history. It is being put on by the People for Puget Sound. They are inviting Natalie Fobes, a Seattle based photographer, to speak. She was one of the first photographers on the scene. She then spent the next three months working for National Geographic and capturing the oil spill’s deadly impact on the wildlife and people. Her talk will include many of her award winning pictures of the spill. Also attending will be author and activist, Dr. Riki Ott. She will discuss what was done in the wake of the spill, such as the social situations that changed and the policies that were implemented. She will also touch on whether she feels that they are adequate safeguards and what else needs to be changed. She will wrap up by touching on our oil-dependency problems, trying to offer up solutions.
The date of the event is March 5th at 7 pm.
If you are interested in attending, you can contact Jamie at (206) 328-7007 for tickets and reservations.
It is $6 for People for Puget Sound members and $8 for nonmembers.
The running time of the event should be about an hour.
