2023 Land Trust Learning Series
This event will be held live at the Barrington Public Library.
Join us for Day Two of our Film Festival featuring the works of award-winning environmental documentary filmmaker Daniel Byers of Skyship Films.
Daniel Byers has travelled to some of the most remote places on earth to film stories of Indigenous Peoples and their struggles to preserve their native lands, way of life, and the species with whom they share these natural places.
On Wednesday, Oct. 4, at 6:30 p.m. Daniel will present a feature-length environmental documentary and one short film. He will share his experience as a filmmaker seeking to capture important stories in extreme conditions.
The Wolf OR-7 Expedition (90 minutes)
The Wolf OR-7 Expedition team retraced by bicycle and on foot the approximate route taken by a GPS – collared wolf called Wolf OR-7. The wolf was born in NE Oregon and in 2011 left his pack and dispersed South to find new territory. He became the first known wolf in California in nearly 90 years, and he is still out there… Follow six adventurers as they retrace the route taken by a GPS-collared Oregon wolf. Their mission is to explore human-wolf coexistence and meet the people along Wolf OR-7’s route who now find themselves in wolf country.
Fish Eagles of Madagascar (10 Minutes)
Visit a remote region in Madagascar, where three ecosystems — forests, lakes and mangroves — are home to an abundance of rare and threatened species, including the Madagascar Fish Eagle.
