WHAT: Portland State University's Institute for Sustainable Solutions (ISS) will open its spring lecture series with a screening of the documentary "The Area: A Journey through the Hanford Nuclear Reservation" and feature a discussion with the filmmaker, Cameron Salony. Salony, an employee with the Department of Energy at Hanford, made the film as a way of documenting his own experience learning about the history of Hanford and its current status as one of the world's largest environmental cleanup sites. Topics include the government's relationship with the Native American population that still lives in the area, Hanford's 45 years of plutonium production, and the current cleanup effort.
The event is free and open to the public.
WHEN: Wednesday, March 30, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: Portland State University, Shattuck Hall Annex, 1914 S.W. Park Ave., Portland, OR
