Join EAS and Sierra Club members at a movie and discussion group on Monday, November 12. Enjoy a 6:15 dinner-in-the-round with other fascinating people from both organizations (bring your own brown bag dinner; hot beverages will be provided). On November 12, our dinner topic/discussion will feature reports on how Kirkland, Redmond, Bellevue, and Issaquah are progressing on their “Cool Cities” programs.

Our November movie is “BEING CARIBOU,” which features Leanne Allison and Karsten Heuer on a mission to experience one of the greatest mammal migrations left in North America. The couple sets out from the northern Yukon to follow the 120,000 Porcupine Caribou herd, whose survival is now threatened by proposed oil and gas drilling. The film follows these two dedicated conservationists on the 2500km, 7-month journey as they brave extremes of physical and mental hardship, in the hope their story may help ensure the caribou's survival. BEING CARIBOU brings the life of the herd vibrantly alive from a unique, inside perspective.
Our movie is 72 minutes long this month, so we will start the movie at 7:15, 15 minute early.
