Climate Warriors Film Screening

CLIMATE WARRIORS is a unique cinematic documentary that motivates everybody to become part of the climate warrior movement.

As a passionate fighter for climate transition, Carl-A. Fechner is connecting people from diverse backgrounds on both sides of the Atlantic. The climate warriors are victims of pollution, kid-activists and advocates from different backgrounds wanting to protect the planet. Wars are fought over fossil fuels. With this film, Carl-A shows how human rights can be kept in balance in favor of peace. Activists raise their voices in resistance to lobbyists and inhumane social realities, offering solutions with cutting edge technologies and inspiring activism.

An energy revolution is possible, let’s make it a reality!

Panel Discussion
A Panel discussion moderated by Bronwyn Major, Community Organizer, Surfer, Activist will take place after the film.

Panelists will include:
Kevin McKeown, City of Santa Monica Councilmember

Malibu Lagoon Field Trips
4th Sunday of Every Month, Every Month of the Year
SANTA MONICA BAY AUDUBON SOCIETY (SMBAS)

https://smbasblog.com

ADULT WALK 8:30 A.M. – Beginner and experienced, 2-3 hours. Species range from 40 in June to 60-75 during migrations and winter. We meet at the metal-shaded viewing area next to the parking lot and begin walking east towards the lagoon. We always check the offshore rocks and the ocean. When lagoon outlet is closed we continue east around the lagoon to Adamson House. We put out special effort to make our monthly Malibu Lagoon walks attractive to first-time and beginning birdwatchers. So please, if you are at all worried about coming on a trip and embarrassing yourself because of all the experts, we remember our first trips too. Someone showed us the birds; now it’s our turn.

CHILDREN AND PARENTS WALK 10:00 A.M. – One hour session, meeting at the metal-shaded viewing area next to the parking lot. We start at 10:00 for a shorter walk and to allow time for families to get it together on a sleepy Sunday morning. Our leaders are experienced with kids so please bring them to the beach! We have an ample supply of binoculars that children can use without striking terror into their parents. We want to see families enjoying nature. (If you have a Scout Troop or other group of more than seven people, _YOU MUST CALL LU (310-395-6235)_ to make sure we have enough binoculars and docents.)

DIRECTIONS: Malibu Lagoon is at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Cross Creek Road. Look around for people wearing binoculars.
PARKING: Parking machine recently installed in the lagoon lot: 1 hr $3; 2 hrs $6; 3 hrs $9, all day $12 ($11 seniors); credit cards accepted. Annual passes accepted. You may also park (read the signs carefully) either along PCH west of Cross Creek Road, on Cross Creek Road, or on Civic Center Way north (inland) of the shopping center.
