Movie Night at the Watershed Resource Center
September 29, 2023 Free
5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Watch Beaver Believers and The Octopus’ Garden documentaries at the beautiful Watershed Resource Center at Arroyo Burro Beach.
The Beaver Believers is an award-winning feature documentary sharing the urgent yet whimsical story of an unlikely cadre of activists – five scientists and a sassy, spicy hairdresser – who share a common vision. They’re all working to restore the North American Beaver, that most industrious, ingenious, bucktoothed engineer, to the watersheds of the American West.
The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation’s film, Discover Wonder: The Octopus Garden, was honored with the Shorts Award as the best short film at the 18th Annual International Ocean Film Festival. The 9-minute film follows a team of scientists to the depths of NOAA’s Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary to view one of the rarest and deepest octopus brooding colonies on the planet, which was discovered by researchers on the Ocean Exploration Trust’s E/V Nautilus.
