On Screen/In Person: Rebels With a Cause

Friday, February 13, 2015 - 7:30pm
Taylor Little Theatre

In the 1950s, unconvinced by land developers who promoted residential construction as unmitigated progress, citizens began banding together to preserve open spaces for parks and farms. Rebels with a Cause is the story of a California effort that grew into an astonishing system of 14 National Seashores – the result of garden clubs, ranchers, conservationists, politicians, and volunteers working together to preserve our public land. The filmmaker, director Nancy Kelly, will be present for a discussion following the film.
