BURNED Barnstorming Tour – Asheville, North Carolina

February 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

A screening of BURNED will be hosted by the Dogwood Alliance at The Collider, 1 Haywood St, Asheville, NC on Friday, February 21 at 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

You’re invited to The Collider’s Monthly Movie Night! For our first movie night, we’re excited to partner with Dogwood Alliance to bring you the award-winning documentary, Burned: Are Trees the New Coal?, an exposé of the biomass electric power industry. Come ready to learn about the threats forests across the South are facing from the biomass industry, and the people and policies responsible for its greenwashing. We’ll have snacks, drinks, and  a Q+A with Dogwood Alliance’s Conservation Scientist, Sam Davis.

A life-long treehugger, Sam earned a Ph.D. in Environmental Science in 2015 at Wright State University and completed a postdoc at University of California Merced before leaving academia for greener forests. They are thrilled to be translating science into action with Dogwood Alliance.

This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 5:30, with the film screening beginning at 6:00.
