The National Geographic Society and Department of Energy and Environment are hosting an evening of short environmental films that bring global issues into local focus. Artists, scientists, advocates, and everyday people share stories that cross boundaries and give a new voice to our planet and to our wild, wonderful city. Celebrate the earth, the Anacostia River, and the Rusty-patched Bumble Bee! Learn about the BioBlitz coming to DC in May and how to get involved.
Join the conversation in a Q&A with representatives from the films:
• A Ghost in the Making: Searching for the Rusty-Patched Bumble Bee [DC premiere]
• Nature is Speaking [DC Premiere]
• Rules for the Black Birdwatcher
• The Anacostia River: Making Connections
• Think Like a Scientist: Boundaries [Premiere]
