DamNation Film and Q&A Afterwards With John Jengo – Princeton Migration Event

March 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

As part of the Princeton Migration series, join us for a free showing of DamNation and have a Q&A with fisheries and dam removal experts.
DamNation is a powerful film that explores how rivers bound back to life when obsolete dams are removed. Migrating salmon and other wild fish are able to return to their spawning grounds, after decades without access, and the health of the rivers improve.
We’ll also show a short video of last August’s removal of the Weston Mill Dam on Millstone River after decades of effort by the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association and its partners.
Stay after the viewings to hear from John Jengo, project manager, who led the removal of that dam and others on the nearby Raritan River, and Jim Waltman, executive director of the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association who helped lead the dam’s removal. Examine 19th Century artifacts from these demolished structures.
Enjoy free, organic and locally sourced popcorn during the film and hike our trails after the screening.
