The Sierra Club gathered a few weeks ago for the Austin premiere of WATERSHED, but tickets sold out early. Here's your opportunity for a free screening, sponsored by the First Unitarian Church, followed by a panel discussion. Your Meetup host will be outside the auditorium entrance, wearing a brown stocking cap. The movie starts at 7pm; seating is first-come, first-served.

WATERSHED (http://www.watershedmovie.com/about) tells the story of the threats to the once-mighty Colorado River and offers solutions for the future of the American West. As the most dammed, dibbed, and diverted river in the world struggles to support thirty million people, and the peace-keeping agreement known as the Colorado River Pact reaches its limits, WATERSHED introduces hope. The film was Executive Produced and Narrated by Robert Redford and Directed by award-winning filmmaker, Mark Decena.

The film will be followed by a discussion with Q&A from the audience featuring the following panelists.

Tom Mason, chairman of the Texas Water Foundation and founding member of the Texas advisory board for Environmental Defense Fund.

Jennifer Walker, Water Resources Coordinator for the Sierra Club, Lone Star Chapter.

Paul Robbins, utility citizen activist and publisher of the Austin Environmental Directory.

Non-GMO popcorn and drinks will be served.
