Pete McBride, renowned photographer, filmmaker, and explorer to deliver lecture

Pete McBride

Renowned photographer, filmmaker, writer, and explorer Pete McBride will deliver this semester’s Lecture at the Nexus, conversations at the intersection of water, energy, and food. His talk, titled “Between River and Rim: A 750-mile transect through the Grand Canyon exploring the state of our national parks, is partially based on his most recent film, Into the Canyon. He will highlight current challenges to management of protected places like Grand Canyon National Park, including specific water-energy-food intersections with uranium mining, tourism development, and use of Colorado River water for hydropower and agricultural irrigation.

Pete is an inspiring speaker; his talk will engage not only the University community, but the wider Missoula community as well. His lecture will be held in the UM Music Recital Hall (Music Building) at 7pm with a reception to follow at 8pm in the Rotunda at the Dennison Theatre. 

Mark your calendars—this is an event not to miss!

Prior to his lecture, his film Into the Canyon, will be shown on Monday, Sept 9, at the UC Theater at 7pm. The film screening is also free and open to the public.
