Join The Collider & Hunter Subaru for an important, inspiring (& delicious!) evening Climate science, memory loss, and the dogged determination of a mill-worker-turned-salmon-advocate come together in a powerful and inspiring way with the North Carolina premiere of an award-winning environmental documentary, The Memory of Fish, on Saturday, September 9, at The Collider in Asheville. All proceeds from this event benefit the Thomas R. Karl Internship Program with The Collider, a nonprofit innovation center focused on solutions for climate change. Savory treats, craft beverages & getting up close 'n' personal with the producer/director The event starts at 6pm with a reception featuring delectable foods from Whole Foods/Greenlife Grocery, craft beverages from Oskar Blues Brewery, and wine from Metro Wines.

And enjoy the sunset from The Collider's top floor location with views of vibrant downtown Asheville and the nearby mountains. A man, the wild salmon he loves, and his fight to free a river The Memory of Fish is the story of Dick Goin, the wild salmon he loves, and his fight to free a river. Despite failing memory, Goin has never forgotten his debt to the fish that fed his family since migrating to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula during the Dust Bowl. With the salmon steadily disappearing, Goin’s persistence and a goal of bringing the fish back home results in the biggest dam removal project in U.S. history. Producer/director Jennifer Galvin captures his story beautifully. She will speak to the marriage of film, science and music behind this project in her opening remarks before the screening. The world is waiting for the next generation of climate solution leaders. Get tickets today and do your part to help!  The Thomas R. Karl Internship Program was established to develop the next generation of leaders in climate science and services. Created in honor of Tom Karl upon his retirement as Director of NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information, this internship provides semester-long internships for undergraduates seeking to enter this growing field.
