The Climate Change Coalition of Door County is partnering up with the League of Women Voters to hold a screening of a new documentary in Sturgeon Bay. Saving Snow was filmed in Wisconsin in 2017 and explores the snow sports industry and its struggles against a rising average temperature. According to data presented on the documentary’s website, Door County has seen an average temperature increase of 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit per decade over the last 50 years. Katie Krouse, the coordinator at the Climate Change Coalition of Door County, said the film covers many different areas of the tourism industry and how warmer temperatures might affect normal operations.
The film will be screened at Crossroads at Big Creek on Wednesday, January 9th. The event is free to the public; however, donations are welcomed. Saving Snow is a production of Adaptation Now, a larger film project seeking to document communities dealing with the issues of climate change.
