Humboldt’s own Van Duzen river fills the Arcata Theatre Lounge‘s big screen on Thursday, Aug. 4 for the monthly Ocean Night event.
The Van Duzen Watershed Project was conceived by Sal Steinberg and Paul Trichilo in 2005. As coordinator of Friends of the Van Duzen, Steinberg was concerned about the decline of salmon in the Van Duzen River. Trichilo has been a lifelong advocate of salmon, rivers and watersheds throughout the Pacific Northwest. In an effort to learn more about their local streams, a monitoring program was developed and in 2006, a three-year project was funded to quantify water quality, salmon habitat and upslope conditions. This project culminated in a Watershed Management Plan for the Lower Van Duzen River Basin. More information available at fovd.org.
Rounding out the night is the “Staycation Surfari Epic on Zero Dollars” surf flick Stoked and Broke. Making their own boards, bamboo rickshaws, solar cookers and hobo stoves, surfers Ryan Burch and Cyrus Sutton set off on a 30-mile, eight-day walk through San Diego. But what begins as a guide to taking a minimalist surfing journey quickly becomes an examination of freedom vs. alienation.
