Join us for a screening of the brand-new film, “Seeing The Unseen: Aquatic Invaders & What’s at Stake.” Executively produced by staff at the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy in partnership with Great Lakes Media & Film, this 44-minute documentary highlights the many negative impacts of aquatic invasive species on the Lake Erie watershed and nearby regions, and the work being done to raise awareness about and mitigate the risks from invaders. Several PA-based invasive species experts and educators are featured in the film and provide their knowledge on this important issue.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the film screening beginning promptly at 6 p.m. After the film concludes, join us for a discussion with a panel of experts, several of which are featured in the film, who will answer audience questions. To attend, please complete this online registration form

This event is suitable for all ages, though we recommend that children attending be at least 13 years old.
