Environmental Advisory Committee presents climate change documentary The Messenger

September 20, 2016 - The City of Kawartha Lakes Environmental Advisory Committee in partnership with Fleming College presents a special fundraising screening of the award-winning documentary film: The Messenger on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 2pm in the Glen Crombie Theatre, Fleming College Frost Campus, 200 Albert St. S., Lindsay.

The film explores the effect that climate change will have on migratory birds. Fleming College graduate Joshua See collaborated closely with the director of the film. In 2012 Joshua was the first cohort of students to graduate from the Environmental Visual Communications Post Graduate Certificate.

Admission is by donation, with a $5 minimum being suggested. All proceeds will go to support a migratory bird monitoring project in the constructed wetland being developed at the Frost campus this fall.

Following the screening, the director Su Rynard and Fatal Light Awareness Program founder, Michael Mesure, will be on hand for a discussion period. There will also be an opportunity to view the new wetland, just south of the Trans Canada trail.

The wetland construction is being funded by Mason Homes to offset the loss of wetlands with ongoing development of their property at Hwy35 and Colborne St. It will not only provide much needed wildlife habitat but also provide Fleming students, from earth movers to environmental technicians, a vital hands-on learning experience.

The Environmental Advisory Committee is committed to making public education opportunities available for the protection, conservation and enhancement of the natural world in the City of Kawartha Lakes.
