The 5th Watershed Event, hosted by The Milwaukie Film Series, returns to the historic Masonic Lodge in downtown Milwaukie on April 23rd, 2016. City Council President Lisa Batey will serve as emcee for the evening and Roger Fernandes, a Native American artist and storyteller whose work focuses on the Puget Salish tribes of western Washington. He is an enrolled member of the Lower Elwha Band of S’Klallam Indians and has a degree in Native American Studies from the Evergreen State College.
Our feature film ‘Return of the River’ chronicles the epic story of dam removal on the Elwha River. The story of dam and river touches Milwaukie in an unique and deep way and ‘Return of the River’ is a film for our time that charts a course of possible.
‘Free Kellogg Creek’ is the dream that drives the Watershed Event and this year we have a major announcement about future efforts to remove Kellogg Dam. We’re excited to share the news so please come to the show and be the first to know…
Thanks to our local partners who help make the Milwaukie Film Series possible: Clackamas County Cultural & Tourism Agency, Celebrate Milwaukie, Inc., North Clackamas Urban Watersheds Council, and Milwaukie Masonic Lodge#109.
