Gifford Pinchot film screening coming soon
To Hood River and Stevenson
October 23, 2012
Be one of the first to view the movie Seeking the Greatest Good: The Conservation Legacy of Gifford Pinchot before it is released nation-wide.
Local communities around the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and Mt. Hood National Forest are offering these free, fun and informative screening events.
The two closest filmings will be held:
Nov. 8 at Spring House Cellars in Hood River -- doors open at 6, movie starts at 6:30 p.m.
Nov. 16 at the Skamania Lodge in Stevenson -- doors open at 6, movie starts at 6:30 p.m.
"These screenings will provide a great opportunity for local community members and Forest Service employees to come together and learn a little more about the first American forester and the person for whom this remarkable forest is named," said Gifford Pinchot National Forest Supervisor, Janine Clayton. "Spending time together sharing and discussing issues and ideas is important to us all."
The Pinchot Institute for Conservation recently completed this new 55-minute movie highlighting Gifford Pinchot and the conservation/utilitarian ethic he championed.
His ethic provides a guiding principle in all Forest Service management activities to this day.
Pinchot often said, "Conservation is the foresighted utilization, preservation and/or renewal of forests, waters, lands and minerals, for the greatest good of the greatest number for the longest time."
After the movie at the showings listed above, there will be opportunity for discussions with fellow community members and Forest Service representatives.
