A Celebration of the Life of Eco Heroine
This inspiring event includes a Reception,
a Ritual Blessing, an art exhibit, live performance by Darryl Cherney, the screening of his new documentary Who Bombed Judi Bari?, and a discussion - Why Forests Matter.
Judi Bari was a passionate, articulate, and sometimes funny advocate for social justice - she worked to improve working conditions for loggers and collaborated with some timber companies to stop clear cutting. She was non-violent and changed the way The Earth First!ers movement did their protests.
There will be a Ritual Blessing performed by Oakmonters Gayla and Barry Gordan, an art exhibit with a nature theme, two songs sung by Darryl Cherney, his documentary and after an intermission ( food, wine, and beverages for sale) a discussion on Why Forests Matter.
Local artists will exhibit a few pieces celebrating nature. The artists are
Connie Mygatt, Jennifer Mygatt Tatum, Monica Schwalbenberg- Pena and
Ane Carla Rovetta.
Panelists are Darryl Cherney, Gary Hughes (EPIC), Chris Poehlman (Friends of Gualala River), and Rick Coates (Forest Unlimited / EcoRing)
