Eco Movie Night: Rock the Boat
VENUE: Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center, 13325 Beach Ave, Marina del Rey, CA, 90292
In the summer of 2008, a satirical writer and avid boater named George Wolfe decided to paddle the entire 52 miles of the Los Angeles River, from the headwaters in Canoga Park to its mouth in Long Beach. He organized an expedition and, together with a dozen other ragtag locals, he changed the course of the river forever.
Rock the Boat: Saving America's Wildest River documents the group's audacious feat, an action that is now inspiring urban river restoration and revitilization. It's the story of an embattled waterway, and the story of Los Angeles's past, present, and potential future.
Read what TreePeople founder and president Andy Lipkis, who appears in Rock the Boat, recently wrote in the Los Angeles Times about our city's ability to harvest local rainfall instead of importing--and then wasting!--millions of gallons per year:
"Not enough water, L.A.? Look up."
