Why would four local non-profits team up to show one film? Because the Bay Journal film in question, “High Tide in Dorchester,” covers a local issue all feel is incredibly important.

Produced and directed by local artists Sandy Cannon-Brown, Dave Harp, and Tom Horton, the film debuted in fall of 2017 and explores the impacts of climate change on our coastal communities. The Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge of Cambridge is featured, where the impact of the rising tide is already being reckoned with. In depth interviews with experts and locals alike will give an idea of how sea level rise can and will affect us in our lifetime, using Dorchester county as an example of what could arise worldwide to coastal areas.

Join Waterfowl Chesapeake along with our friends in conservation the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Eastern Shore Land Conservancy and ShoreRivers for a special showing of the film at the Easton Avalon on Thursday, May 31, 2018.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with a cash bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres, followed by the screening at 6:30 p.m. and interpretation from the filmmakers themselves! Tickets are $15 and may be purchased in advance at https://tickets.avalontheatre.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=981 or at the door, pending availability.
