|Long Live The Kings! Special Virtual Livestream + Panel of The Wild, this Saturday October 24th 4pm Pacific / 7pm Eastern|
To celebrate our long friendship and shared love of salmonids, we’re teaming up with Jacques White, Executive Director of Long Live The Kings to celebrate World Fish Migration Day. Join us for a special screening of The Wild with Jacques and activists on the front lines fighting for wild salmon. We will split the proceeds with Long Live The Kings and World Fish Migration Foundation – and 25% of our net ticket sales will be donated to the coalition defending Bristol Bay. Ticket prices are on a sliding scale but money should never be a reason you can’t watch The Wild. If you can’t afford a ticket right now, you can request a confirmation code for a free ticket – no questions asked. (Thanks, Sam Harris.)
Salmon Nation Festival of What WorksYou’re going to be hearing a lot more about Salmon Nation in the days ahead. I was invited to climb into this magic canoe by founders, Spencer Beebe, Chris Brookfield, Cheryl Chen and Ian Gill last year – and I am deeply grateful.
Here’s how we define it: Salmon Nation extends from Northern California to the North Slope of Alaska. It is perhaps the most creative, diverse, rich and beautiful bioregion on Earth. Here, diverse local cultures are forming growing movements toward healthy and regenerative systems. Welcome home.Join us the week of November 15th – 22nd! So. We’re throwing a week-long virtual Festival of What Works to showcase some of the amazing ideas, talents and practices our brothers, sisters, neighbors and cousins are generating here in this place defined by the salmon rivers it’s touched by.
During the course of the week, I’ll be hosting a livestream screening of The Wild as well as a Dam Removal Panel; For Youth! A Future in Salmon Discussion; Conversation with Portugal. The Man about their incredible activism in our bioregion – and last but really, first, a lively hour-long banter with my friend, mentor and fellow salmon nerd, the Archfishop of Salmon himself, Ray Troll!
