A new exhibit, Wild Washington: Earth Day at the UW Libraries, in the Allen Library’s North Lobby focuses on Washington’s wild places, with an emphasis on conservation and environmental protection. The exhibit will remain throughout April, in honor of Earth Day, on April 22. It was created with the help of SEFS students Indigo Doll, Ashley Hillis, Ethan Hunger, Jessie Page and Nameeta Prasad.

Along with the exhibit, there are free film screenings in the Allen Library Auditorium every Friday from 1-3 p.m. Here are the two remaining films in the film line-up:

April 19, Arid Lands, “A documentary feature about the land and people of the Columbia River Basin in southeastern Washington. Sixty years ago, the Hanford nuclear site produced plutonium for the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, and today the area is the focus of the largest environmental cleanups in history. It tells the story of how people changed the landscape over time, and how the landscape affected their lives.”

April 26, How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change, “Traveling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?”
