Colorado Underwater Photographic Society Sept Meeting

 

Tuesday, September 18th , 2012 CUPS Meeting -- 6:30pm socializing -- 7pm Presentation

 

Ocean enthusiasts and the community are invited to join the premiere of

Green Fire Productions new film, “Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean

Stewardship.” This event, which is open to the public, has been gaining acclaim across the country.

 

“Ocean Frontiers” is a documentary that tells the story of people across the country working together to help protect our watersheds, coastlines and oceans, which many of our nation’s communities and economies rely on. The interconnectivity of land use and how it affects the oceans is a major topic of the documentary. After the screening we can discuss your concerns and interests. Get a preview here http://ocean-frontiers.org/

Also this movie has some great underwater footage.
