Meaningful Movies Bellevue will screen ” EVER GREEN ” from Bullfrog Films on ZOOM.

For almost 40 years, partners Marianne Edain and Steve Erickson have worked continually to retain the rural character and ecological diversity of Whidbey Island in Puget Sound, north of Seattle.

Through their organization Whidbey Environmental Action Network (WEAN), Edain and Erickson have monitored county applications for development and logging; challenged projects that violate state environmental law and led the way in science-based environmental public policymaking. In partnership with citizens and communities up and down Whidbey Island, they have helped keep trees standing and protected sensitive island ecosystems.

The effects of WEAN’s work have extended statewide, as the legal precedents of their campaigns have been applied in other regions of Washington

Special Guests: and Mark Dworkin and Marianne Edain and Steve Erickson (featured in the film) Melissa Young (film makers) will be joining us for the screening and our discussion following the film.

“EVER GREEN is a case study in the Washington Growth Management Act and the tensions that arise between development, agriculture, conservation, rural life, and other land use needs. It’s good for students to wrestle with these tensions, which are rarely black and white, and see stories of everyday people who have been able to use knowledge of policy and persistence to shape their communities.”
Bonnie Becker, Associate Professor of Marine Ecology, University of Washington Tacoma


Please join us for this inspirational film of beauty and hope for the future.

    Hi there! The Zoom link in the description doesn’t seem to work. It looks like there is a typo. I believe it should be this: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87929718047?pwd=NmwvcmdqdnZEYWJiS0t3ODRZWFhKQT09
