Tuesday evening: Saving Alaska’s Bristol Bay salmon

Ohio State’s 2017 Environmental Film Series continues at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7, with “Red Gold,” a documentary on the fight to save Alaska’s Bristol Bay salmon fishery from a massive open-pit mine proposed in the bay’s headwaters. An article on Outside Online called the controversy the “fiercest battle over wilderness and resources” since the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge. The film has won awards at festivals in Banff, Vancouver and Telluride, among others.

Admission is free and open to the public. Get location and other details here.
