WATERMARK - Film Screening, March 4 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Come and join us at the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre for an afternoon focused on the most precious of resources: WATER! In Whitehorse we see water all the time: the Yukon River flowing, beautiful lakes to fish in and/or canoe on, seemingly limitless clean tap water and toilets to flush. During the Ice Age Beringian animals and humans needed access to water to survive just as much as we need it today. But what about other places on Earth? How do waterscapes differ around the world? How does human usage of water change from place to place? Where are the world’s largest water projects? And, what link might there be between the extinction of the last wooly mammoths and water? To explore these questions, and more, we will be showing the film Watermark (2013, by award-winning director Jennifer Baichwal and world-renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky) and providing water facts from the Yukon, Beringia and beyond! Come and be wowed by water!
Appropriate event for children, teens and adults alike!
