Special Film Screening: New Trouble on the Neuse
Thursday, August 29th, 2019
Join us to discuss protecting the waterways we love. On Aug. 29, community advocates, activists and scientists answer your questions after a free screening of the WRAL documentary “New Trouble on the Neuse” hosted by Bill Leslie.
“New Trouble on the Neuse” comes ~30 years after reporter Bill Leslie’s original documentary, which prompted bipartisan support for protection of the Neuse River. Decades later, those studying and working to protect the river have surveyed how it’s doing. Their verdict? Not good.
A Q&A will be held after the short documentary, featuring:
– Upper Neuse Riverkeeper Matthew Starr
– Activist Rick Dove
– Scientists Dr. Joanne Burkholder (NCSU), Dr. Doug Rader (Environmental Defense Fund), Dr. Nathan Hall (UNC Institute of Marine Sciences), Dr. Stan Riggs (ECU)
– WRAL reporter Bill Leslie
