1-90 Wildlife Project Documentary, "Cascade Crossroads" Public Screening Jan 26th

You won't want to miss the upcoming Natural Science Seminar, Friday, January 26th from 4-5pm in the Science Building, room 147.  

Cascade Crossroads is a 30-minute documentary film chronicling the amazing story unfolding on Interstate 90 just east of Snoqualmie Pass in Washington’s Cascade mountains, where the intersection of a vital east-west transportation corridor and a north-south wildlife corridor resulted in historic conservation, collaboration, and innovation that led to the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project under construction today.  Staff from I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition will make opening remarks before the film, and a suite of partners in the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project will be available after the film to take questions from attendees.

Commissioned by the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, the film aims to not only share this unique story but also inspire action in other landscapes facing similar challenges between wildlife and roads.

The film features breathtaking landscape footage of Washington’s Central Cascades and interviews with public and private partners including: Paul James (Central Washington University), Mark Anderson (Anderson Hay), Dan Brewster (Summit at Snoqualmie), Representative Judy Clibborn (D, 41st District), Gene Duvernoy (Forterra), Mitch Freidman (Conservation Northwest), Patty Garvey-Darda (Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest), Randy Giles (WA Department of Transportation), Jon Hoekstra (Mountains to Sound Greenway), Senator Curtis King (R, 14th District), , Mike Livingston (WA Department of Fish and Wildlife), Doug MacDonald (former Washington Secretary of Transportation), Charlie Raines (Sierra Club & I- 90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition), Janet Ray (AAA of Washington), Peter Singleton (PNW Research Station – US Forest Service), Jen Watkins (Conservation Northwest & I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition), and Brian White (WA Department of Transportation).

A trailer for the film is available at https://vimeo.com/166867310

This will be the first public screening of the film east of the Cascades!  Public release of the film is January 10, 2017. Other public screenings following the release will be listed on the project webpage.
