Free Film about Collaboration on the Colville National Forest at the Woodland Theatre in Kettle Falls April 8th

The Northeast Washington Forestry Coalition is hosting a screening of a new documentary film that explains how the Colville National Forest has gone from gridlock to becoming a national model for collaborative forestry success.  The film  explains how in the 1980s and ‘90s, loggers, and environmentalists fought battles over clearcutting, wilderness, and the future of the forest (the timber wars), and how collaboration has led to common ground over forest management. 

The film, From Controversy to Common Ground:

The Colville National Forest Story 

Thursday, April 8

Pre-film reception at 6:30 pm

Film and discussion from 7:00-8:00 pm

Woodland Theatre, Kettle Falls, WA

  1. I saw this film in Republic and it’s really worth seeing. Professionally produced with compelling interviews of key players in the “timber wars” along with beautiful photos of the Columbia Highlands. This film objectively presents all sides of the issue of wilderness designation in the Colville National Forest. Watching this film made me realize the incredible work being done by the Northeast Washington Forestry Coalition. Don’t miss this film…no matter what you position on saving the last wild places in NE Washington.

  2. Please …. I’ve very interested — as a Masters Degree Candidate at Antioch University Seattle, in securing a copy of the Tonasket NEW Forestry Coalition Fiom and Wildlife Discussion.

    Is this possible?
