Huxley College Speaker Series & Elwha: a River Reborn

As you probably already know, the Huxley College Speaker Series takes place every Thursday throughout the quarter, and features a variety of knowledgeable speakers presenting on a range of fascinating topics. You can see the whole list here, but I also want to direct your attention to two of the upcoming sessions in particular since they complement the Elwha: A River Reborn exhibit currently on display in Special Collections.

Thursday, November 6th from 4:00 to 5:30 pm in the Wilson Library Reading Room: "Freeing the Elwha" panel discussion featuring faculty from Western and Northwest Indian College who will discuss the Elwha restoration and its broader implications.

Thursday, November 13th from 4:00 to 5:30pm in the Academic West building Rom 204: Film Return of the River, with Director John Gussman in attendance & hosting a Q & A after the screening.

Both of these events are free and open to the public. Also, a reminder if you haven't already seen it, stop by Special Collections (Wilson Library 6th floor) Mon-Fri between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm to see Elwha: A River Reborn,  the traveling exhibit from the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, now on display at WWU and supported by a partnership between Western Libraries and Huxley College of the Environment.
