St Johns River Alliance presents
the 2nd Annual River Classroom
at Blue Spring State Park, Orange City FL
March 10-13 2009
Immerse your senses and mind for 4 days and 3 nights on the beautiful St Johns River. Experience her gentleness and learn of her delicate secrets of sustainability and vulnerability in a congenial and most enjoyable setting.
Equinox Documentaries’ Bill Belleville will join members of the Trust for Public Land, St Johns Riverkeeper, St Johns River Water Management District along with river guides, historians, nature photographers to discuss disparate agendas for the river—some for precedent-setting removal of river water for public supply, others for new moves to fund removal of the Rodman Dam, and still others for making the river more accessible for recreation.
Participants will enjoy a screening of our latest film, In Marjorie’s Wake, along with a preview of our forthcoming film on Florida’s water crisis, From Eden to Sahara.
Other presentations include a preview of Florida’s American Heritage River: The Art of the St. Johns Region, co-authored by Mallory McCane O’Connor and Gary Monroe, One Woman’s Adventure on the Nile of the Americas from educator/filmmaker Michelle Thatcher, and the river-region music of singer-songwriter Magda Hiller.
