Blazing trails (without the burn): Environment/adventure film fest


Here is just a sample of the 19 films featuring environmental and adventure themes, presented by the Evanston Environmental Association, starting tonight.

•  From the Ground to the Clouds –Fifty years ago, Jane Goodall studied chimpanzees with binoculars, pencils and a notebook. Today, her team uses mobile devices and cloud-based mapping technology. But the goal is the same: Saving endangered chimps. 

•  SLOMO–This successful neurologist traded in his lab coat for roller blades and adopted a new motto: “Don’t be an a——.” See what happened next!


The event happens Friday, Feb. 7 and Friday, Feb. 21.
