December 20th 10:00 a.m. Tapped. Tapped is a 2009 documentary film by directors Stephanie Soechtig and Jason Lindsey. The two began the documentary after research into ocean pollution ‘kept leading them to bottled water’…. (the movie) examines the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil.” Showing of the 76 minute film will be followed by the annual holiday potluck in the classroom. This is a free program and no preregistration is necessary as this celebration will definitely be held. The conservation department will provide table service and drinks. Don’t forget a homemade nature ornament for the friendship tree!

*Reminder postcards or emails will be sent out at the beginning of December for those that are interested in this A.C.O.R.N. program. You may also listen to Cari Nicely, Naturalist, or Danika Cox, Assistant Naturalist, on KILJ Radio 105.5 F.M. on the first Thursday of the month for updates to all programs.
