Land Trust Announces Second Offering in Winter Film Series

Rockland, Maine - The Georges River Land Trust and The Highlands Coffee House, are pleased to announce the second screening in their IT’S A WILD LIFE Winter Film Series. This exciting series of films celebrate the wild and wonderful ways we live our life on the land and water here in Maine. Films screen at 7:00 pm on the second Friday of each month all winter at The Highlands Coffee House in Thomaston. The public is welcome and admission is free.

The second film to be screened is HARDWATER, directed by Ryan Brod and Daniel Sites, on January 11, 2013. This Maine-made, feature-length documentary pays homage to our state’s tribal, oft-misunderstood ice fishing sub-culture. It is a story about a treasured Maine tradition, shared passion for storytelling, and the ways in which ice fishing brings people together during the harshest of seasons.

This event is part of Georges River Land Trust’s annual Walks & Talks series, an effort to introduce the community to the wonderful resources available to them in the St. George River watershed. Additional films to be screened:  IN THE BLOOD on February 8, 2013, and TURNING TAIL on March 8, 2013.

Organized in 1987, the Georges River Land Trust works to conserve the ecosystems and traditional heritage of the Georges River watershed region through permanent land protection, stewardship, education and outdoor experiences.  The watershed extends from Montville in the north to Port Clyde and Cushing in the south and includes streams, ponds, lakes, wetlands, farms, hills, mountains, blueberry barrens and forest, as well as a rich tidal estuary of salt marsh, clamflats and productive fishing grounds.
