The Spill’s Broad Reach Panel Discussion
Members of S.B. area environmental organizations and the oil industry will address some of the issues arising from the 1969 S.B. Channel oil blowout that sparked a larger national discussion and environmental movement.
When: Thursday, June 16, 2011, 7 p.m.
Where: S.B. Maritime Museum, 113 Harbor Wy., #190, Santa Barbara
Cost: Free - $5
Age limit: Not available
Topics and issues for the panel discussion include, but are not limited to: local preparedness, the extent of scientific research published and how well we understand the risks and effects ocean drilling has on the environment, alternative, renewable energy sources, regulation compliance, and common ground environmentalists and the oil industry can find as we move forward.
The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum will also tell this story in the new permanent exhibit, The Spill’s Broad Reach. Featuring selections from Paul Lynch’s documentary short Birth of a Movement, relating to the 1969 oil spill and resulting activism, the exhibit captures Santa Barbara’s unique role in shaping modern environmental movements.
Free for S.B. Maritime Museum members, $5 for non-members.
