Saving the Chattahoochee: Film Screening and Discussion

Presented by Chattahoochee Nature Center, Chattahoochee River Keeper, Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area

Chattahoochee Nature Center is proud to host a screening and discussion of Saving the Chattahoochee on the evening of Friday, March 22 – in celebration of World Water Day!

Hosted at CNC’s intimate Cowie Weiss Theater, the new documentary (40 min) by Hal Jacobs takes a more personal look at Sally Bethea, one of the first women riverkeepers in the U.S. It's about how she stepped up to become the face of the river at a pivotal moment in Atlanta's development, while also being a single parent to two sons. How she teamed up with Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin, the first Black female mayor of a major southern city, to change the course of the river's future.

The screening will be followed by discussion and Q/A with Sally Bethea, Jason Ulseth - Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, Jerry Hightower – Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, and other river partners. Please join us!

Doors open at 7pm, event starts at 7:30pm!
