Ten years in the making, “Hidden Rivers” is Freshwaters Illustrated’s newest feature film that explores the rivers and streams of the Southern Appalachian region, North America’s most biologically rich waters. The film follows the work of conservation biologists and explorers throughout the region, and reveals both the beauty and vulnerability of these ecosystems.

The Global Change Center welcomes Freshwater Illustrated as they present their film “Hidden Rivers” at the Lyric Theater on November 2nd at 2pm. The event is free and open to the public; it will be preceded by festivities and followed by a panel discussion. Co-sponsored by the Global Change Center, the Fralin Life Sciences Institute, the Lyric Theater, the New River Land Trust, and Wild Virginia, this event hopes to inspire and bring awareness of freshwater conservation to Virginia Tech and the regional community.

Pre-film activities will begin at 1:15pm: mingling with fun-loving riverine mascots, as well as info booths by the Global Change Center, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, and the US Forest Service, and our other sponsors.
