Patagonia Burlington Presents a Film and Community Discussion on Dams

The subject of dam removal is a controversial topic being dealt with on a national level. To help the Burlington community grasp this subject matter on a local level Patagonia Burlington is proud to host an in-store discussion about the future of dams in the state of Vermont, followed by a special screening of DamNation, an award-winning documentary.

Join Patagonia Burlington and the Vermont Natural Resources Council on Tuesday, June 3rd for a healthy discussion as we dissect all that needs to be known about the future of dams in the state of Vermont. Led by a group of prominent figures within the Vermont dam community, we are excited to provide this platform to help educate the Vermont community about this relevant topic.

The doors will open at 6:30pm on Tuesday, June 3rd and the event will start at 7:00pm at Patagonia Burlington on 157 Bank Street in Burlington, Vermont.

Topics to be discussed will include an overview of dams in Vermont, legislation being passed to help regulate and maintain dams in Vermont, the dam removal process and recent projects in Vermont, and Burlington’s purchase of the Hydro 1 Dam in Winooski. 

This event coincides with Patagonia’s in-store screening of the award winning documentary and the Burlington premiere DamNation on Thursday, June 5th.
