Below is an excerpt from our Fall Cool Planet newsletter highlighting our Cool Planet Skiers program work.
From the struggle against fading winters, unexpected heroes emerge. A documentary by Adaptation Now filmmaker Diogo Freire includes scenes filmed at the American Birkebeiner in February 2017. See some stills here – recognize anyone in the shots?
The film Saving Snow will premiere Birkie weekend 2018 (February 22-25) in Hayward, WI and other locations. We are seeking volunteers to assist with tabling at the Birkie Expo and the film showing as well as other promotional activities. Click here to volunteer.
We are excited to announce the endorsement for climate action by Olympic skiers Caitlin and Brian Gregg, by Executive Director of the Birkie, Ben Popp and the Birchleggings Club (you must have skied 20 or more Birkies to be a member). Thanks to all of them for taking a stand on protecting the winters we love. Know others who would like to raise their voice in an endorsement? Click here to volunteer.
