Paddling club to double feature screening

By Staff | Dec 11, 2019

The Ocean Tribe Paddling Club will host a documentary screening double feature on Dec. 17 starting at 5 p.m. at the Sanibel Sea School, at 455 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

Join for popcorn and discussion while enjoying two paddling-based documentaries.

– “The Forgotten Coast: Return to Wild Florida”

Following in the footsteps of a wandering Florida black bear, three friends leave civilization and enter a lost American wilderness on a rugged thousand-mile journey by foot, paddle and bike. Traversing Florida’s vast and seldom seen “Forgotten Coast,” the expedition encounters stunning and rare wildlife including black bears, manatees, alligators, ancient river fish and endangered woodpeckers – all living within the fragile wildlife corridor stretching from the Everglades to the Florida-Alabama border.

– “The Last Green Thread”

On a narrow path through Florida’s Everglades Headwaters, three friends embark on a journey to survey a fragile wilderness corridor before it disappears forever. Amidst a backdrop of massive development and population growth, their expedition documents the vitality and connectedness of an ecosystem in a state of rapid transformation. Mother nature may be resilient – but when the last green thread is stretched to the breaking point, can we summon the courage and resourcefulness to change course?

The club is open to everyone, and the first event is always free. After that, participants are asked to purchase a club membership via the website. Ocean Tribe Outfitters is a club organized by Sanibel Sea School that helps the local paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean.
