The premiere showing of The Currents Film April 10, Durango Co.
The Currents Film is going to have a premier viewing on April 10, in Durango, Co. It is a story about the San Juan River basin, the ecology and politics of water use in the Southwest. I feel it is a must see for any college program, especially those that do desert rivers, reservoir, or mountain trips. The trip story line starts at 13,700 ft in the Southern Rocky Mountains of Colorado, and ends at Page, AZ at 3,700 ft in elevation. Four friends make this 5 week river journey to discover what is really happening to the rivers of the Southwest. Ft Lewis College Outdoor
