This past weekend I drove up just west of Port Angeles to Olympic Raft & Kayak to attend a screening of the movie Damnation.

Damnation is a movie about removing obsolete dams to let rivers run free and restore fishery habitat.  The salmon habitat has been severely harmed by dams.

The evening started with beers and live music.  Not too long after I arrived the food was made available.  Smoked salmon - yum!!!

The venue was a grass spot at Olympic Raft & Kayak.

The shelter roof thing that contained the band had a flip down screen.

where the movie was to be shown.

It worked quite well, actually.  I suppose there were about 100 people in attendance.  Included were the producer of the movie and several of the people in the movie.

What made this extra cool as the location of the movie is very close to the location of where a dam was recently removed from the Elwha river.  The movie people and some from Olympic Raft & Kayak

floated the area earlier that day.  If you haven't already, watch the movie trailer up above.  And, if you haven't already, find a screening and attend.  The movie is very well made and the content very important.
