Bob Everitt is a graduate of the University of Washington (Go Dawgs!) masters program in Wildlife Sciences. He spent several years post-graduation working for the National Marine Mammal Laboratory in Alaska before coming to work for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in 1980 as a field biologist. In subsequent years, he worked in several field and supervisory positions before being appointed the Regional Director for Northern Puget Sound's Region 4. Bob is the agency Director's policy representative in the region and works closely with all the agency programs, stakeholder groups, legislators, and others.

Bob will discuss the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's "Wild Future Initiative." For the past year, WDFW has reached out to people across the state to gather perspectives on the priorities that should drive the agency forward over the next few years. This effort reflects the WDFW's commitment to work with all interest groups to address the most important challenges facing fish and wildlife conservation in the state. This process has resulted in a number of strategies, policy ideas, and funding recommendations. Bob will discuss those and seek input from the group to help WDFW better inform its upcoming legislative strategy.

A FIERCE GREEN FIRE: The Battle For a Living Planet is the first big-picture exploration of the environmental movement: grassroots and global activism spanning fifty years from conservation to climate change. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to battling 20,000 tons of toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace saving the whales to Chico Mendes and the rubbertappers saving the Amazon; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization… the film tells vivid stories about people fighting – and succeeding – against enormous odds.


After the film there will be a discussion of issues raised by the film and the audience will hear from a special guest (TBA).

Doors open at 6:30 for conversation and refreshments, film begins at 7:00.

Donations are gladly accepted to help Sno-King Meaningful Movies continue to bring important films to the community.
