<Do you want to know more about our Earth, its inhabitants and human impact on our future?>
You'll get the chance starting on Friday, Feb.17, when the Cookeville-Putnam County Clean Commission presents the National Geographic documentary, Human Footprint, hosted by TTU's Millard Oakley STEM Center from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in Learning Studio 135. Admission is free; seating is limited.
The 90-minute documentary illustrates the impact each American has on the Earth as they live their lives. The level of human consumption is revealed and opportunities to reduce the negative impact are addressed.
This environmental learning experience is first a series of select documentaries offered by the Clean Commission in partnership with the Oakley STEM Center.
"The Cookeville-Putnam County Clean Commission is thrilled to be able share documentaries on important subjects concerning the human impact on the environment," said Executive Coordinator Lisa Luck.
"We are looking forward to our collaboration with the STEM Center and promoting environmental education and discussion in our community."
Next in the series is Planet Earth, by BBC/Discovery Channel on Earth Day, Sunday afternoon, April 22 (during Cookeville's annual Nature Fest event).
