Blue Heart, a Patagonia film about the fight to preserve Europe’s last wild rivers, will shown Thursday, July 18 at 6:30 p.m. at Patagonia of Westport at 87 Post Road East, Westport CT.

With more than 3,000 hydropower dams and river diversions proposed or in the process of being built in the Balkans, communities that depend on these rivers are standing up to investors and developers that are threatening their livelihood, local wildlife, and ecosystems.

Connecticut alone is home to more than 3,000 dams—and CFE/Save the Sound is working hard to tear down those that are outdated and threatening wildlife habitat and communities.

After the screening, the Save the Sound ecological restoration team will discuss our local efforts to tear down dams, build fishways, and restore rivers throughout Connecticut and the Long Island Sound region.

For a $10 donation you can enjoy beer from Black Hog Brewing in your own reusable Patagonia tumblr, and light snacks. Please sign up here to let Save the Sound know you’re attending!
