Come see the latest installment of the DC Environmental Film Festival about the history of the Potomac River Watershed, which Rock Creek is a part of.

 

Everyone knows the Potomac as the river that flows past Washington, D.C. But what do we know about the river beyond our capital city? This film follows the 382-mile course of the Potomac from its origins at a small spring in West Virginia, through old coal town communities, past solitary nomads and bargemen’s children who grew up on the C&O Canal to mountain farms, survivors of the Piscataway Indian tribe and finally to the 12-mile wide river of ships that meets the Chesapeake Bay.

 

This film is presented by Producer Robert Cole and will be shown at the Carnigie Institute for Science, Elihu Root Auditorium located at 1530 P Street NW, metro accessable through the Dupont Circle station on the red line.
