The Colorado

Join us this week on Tuesday, March 6th at the Hansen Student Center from 7:00pm – 9:30pm for a special screening of the film The Colorado. In a 2016 review, The New York Times says: “The film, narrated by the actor Mark Rylance, surveys the Colorado River’s history and ecology, as well as the people whose lives and livelihoods it affects. Various sections focus on aspects like prehistoric settlements, European exploration, dam-building, agriculture and migration, and climate change.”

You can learn more about the film here.

The project’s director and co-author, Murat Eyuboglu, will introduce the film and discuss its development and production. The event is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!

With spring just weeks away, the air will soon be filled with birdsong. And what better way to identify birds and their calls than the Birds of North America database? Wesleyan students, staff, and faculty have access to the full online database here. Whether you’re a biology major or simply enjoy birding, we encourage you to check it out!
