When: Wednesday, Nov 14, 2018 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

As part of the monthly program series of The Glens Falls-Saratoga Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club and co-sponsored by The Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library, join us for a screening of " Harnessing Nature: Building The Great Sacandaga". Jason Kemper (producer) and Lauren Roberts (writer, producer) will be there to discuss the documentary process and to answer questions after the film.

"Harnessing Nature" chronicles the incredible journey of the creation of the Great Sacandaga Lake, including first-hand accounts of valley residents and original documents describing this amazing feat of engineering. For the residents of the Sacandaga Valley, the loss of their homes and communities was devastating. For the residents downstream who had suffered staggering losses from years of flooding, it was long overdue. For those who live along its shores today, it is important to understand the story of the Great Sacandaga Lake. Joint program with Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library. DVD is 80 minutes.
