The Age of Nature Screening & Discussion |The Future of the Apalachicola
Watch a preview of PBS's special series Age of Nature, and join us as we discuss the show's themes as they pertain to the Apalachicola River basin. Starting on bluffs high above the river, restored sandhill habitat sends ripples throughout the river system. You'd be surprised how native plants can build habitat, send fresh water flowing into the river, and add sand to beaches over fifty miles away. And these plants are an important defense against a changing climate that brings prolonged droughts and increasingly violent storms.

We invite you to join our panel of conservation leaders to talk about the future of nature in the Apalachicola River basin and Forgotten Coast:
