Event Info:

Join us for the first in a series of four films that highlight issues and concerns impacting our communities!

In “Searching for Sustainability,” experts and activists explore and discuss the impacts of standard agricultural practices on the land, water, and population of Wisconsin. Phosphorous, manure, and fertilizers are creating huge challenges to the viability of the great Wisconsin outdoors. What alternatives exist to our current approaches to the environment and what choices for action are available to us?

Following this one-hour film, our new SWAN Coordinator, Dan Gray, will facilitate a group discussion of the ideas and challenges presented by the film.

Also, don’t miss Milwaukee Riverkeeper Executive Director Jennifer Bolger Breceda presenting updates on Milwaukee Riverkeeper projects, programs and news!
