The San Juan County Marine Resources Committee is hosting three screenings of the new Patagonia film “Artifishal” as part of Orca Action month. Please join the marine resources committee to take action to protect the Salish Sea’s wild fish. The screenings will be followed by a discussion surrounding topics covered by the film as well as sharing how well managed hatchery programs can have a positive impact for whales while also protecting wild salmon populations from genetic risks.

Free screenings are taking place on Orcas, Lopez and San Juan islands:

Orcas Island – June 24 at 6-9 p.m., Odd Fellows Hall.

Lopez Island – June 25 at 6:30-8:30 p.m., Lopez Center for Community and the Arts.

San Juan Island – June 27 at 6-9 p.m., Brickworks.
