Join us for an evening filled with celebration and an event that is sure to inspire and tantalize your senses, on May 26 at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson at 7:30 p.m. This Benefit, Feature Film and Slide Show Presentation are brought to you in celebration of B.C. Rivers, in support of the SkeenaWatershed Conservation Coalition and in an effort to connect with you, each other and our northern neighbors!

The evening’s feature film, Awakening the Skeena, and the opening slide show presentation, “Paddling the Stikine River” are a must-see that bring to life our northern B.C. Rivers of the Sacred Headwaters. They illuminate a fragile wilderness with an uncertain future, and tell a tale of two magically synchronized journeys of hope from the headwaters to the ocean, inspiring people and communities to come together and take action.

The evening begins with David and Laurie Knox ,as they present their slide show, Paddling the Stikine River, followed by Awakening the Skeena, the feature film of Ali Howard’s epic 610-km swim down the Skeena River. Both journeys took place in the summer of 2009 to bring attention to these threatened rivers of Northern B.C., which flow through some of the most beautiful country on the planet.

Bring your friends, neighbors and co-workers and see how individuals are reaching out and touching the hearts of people in their communities – inspiring them to act to protect water, rivers, salmon, and the precious wilderness they enjoy and we all rely on!
