Want to learn more about the importance of ocean conservation and what you can do to help?

Join me Thursday at the downtown Patagonia store for a screening of “Voices from the Sea,” a documentary that follows a remote society’s battle to save the sea.

After the screening, I’ll lead a discussion about the interconnected issues of ocean conservation and how we can make a positive impact.

Panelists will include Laura Huffman, state director of The Nature Conservancy, Jennifer Walker, water resources program manager for the Sierra Club’s Lone Star Chapter, Ryan Boudreaux, seafood coordinator for the southwest region for Whole Foods, and Nick Wiersema of the Central Texas Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation.

Travel+SocialGood is hosting the event, which starts at 7 p.m. The screening will start at 7:30, and the panel discussion will begin at 8 p.m., followed by an audience Q&A at 8:45 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and include a beer from Hops & Grain. The store is located at 305 Congress Avenue.
