Black Bear Festival

Black Bear Festival
at Caldwell Park, Umatilla FL
March 28 2009

The Florida Black Bear Festival offers activities, presentations and field trips that provide participants with information about how bears live, bear behavior, and how we can live and recreate in bear country safely.

Equinox Documentaries will have an exhibit to display our short film on the restoration of the Archie Carr family cabin and to answer questions about the making of it.

Equinox has donated its professional services and production time for the film because of the urgency for restoration, and the opportunity to partner with like-minded agencies and non-profits. That includes the Umatilla Historical Society, the USFS, and those individuals who have donated time, money or products to the effort: Dr. Ray Willis of the USFS, the Carr family, and Gainesville artist Eleanor Blair, among others. The cabin is sited on 46 acres of scrub and pine flatwoods recently donated to the Ocala National Forest by Dr. Tom Carr, Archie’s surviving brother.

2nd Annual River Classroom

Filed under: Latest Updates — Stacey at 10:49 am on Tuesday, February 17, 2009

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.
