This River Raisin Institute will continue their fall film series this Wednesday, October 30th, with the movie; Chasing Ice. Chasing Ice is a 2013 film documentary by National Geographic photographer James Baloh that captures the decline of glaciers in Greenland, Iceland, Alaska, and Montana. Every daylight hour for three years cameras shot frames providing proof glaciers are receding at an accelerating pace. The River Raisin Institute believes the public should understand that Climate Change matters to everyone who breathes air, eats food, drinks water, and pays property taxes. For more information on the film series and upcoming films, check out this brochure.

The River Raisin Institute works to promote sustainable communities through hands-on, collaborative, experiential learning. The Institute works with Monroe area students and adults; engaging the community in such things as water quality monitoring along the River Raisin, native vegetation restoration, and green energy and green building.
