*FREE SCREENING. IN PERSON: filmmaker Jeanne Vitale and Enviromental Conservationist Laura Heady
If you are concerned about clean drinking water, flooding, human health, wildlife or climate change, you need to learn about our under-valued wetlands. “Liquidity: The Value of Wetlands” is a 25-minute documentary by Hudson Valley native Jeanne Vitale that promotes awareness of our wetland resources. This video discusses the economic and environmental values of wetlands, the role they play in protecting water quality, and what local residents can do to help.
Preceding the film screening will be a presentation on wetland conservation by Laura Heady from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Hudson River Estuary Program. Filmmaker Jeanne Vitale will also be available to discuss the film and answer questions. This event is part of Dutchess Watershed Awareness Month, a series of events dedicated to raising awareness about watershed and water quality issues in Dutchess County.
