Earth Day Commemoration:
Chasing Ice (film)

Tuesday, April 22nd, at 7 p.m.
Highline School District's administration building (ERAC), 15675 Ambaum Blvd SW, Burien

In keeping with our mission to protect and preserve our history, and to build a green building that preserves our environment, the Society is pleased to introduce our community to an excellent movie about preserving our planet.

Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of climate change. Using time-lapse cameras, his videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.

Admission free with Society membership card; otherwise a donation is appreciated.

Parking is free in downtown Burien.
