PBS filmmakers Rafael de la Uz and Michelle Ferrari will screen their new documentary on “Rachel Carson.” The screening will be in the Byrd Auditorium at the National Conservation Training Center, 698 Conservation Way, Shepherdstown, WV 25443. It will by followed by a Q & A session with the filmmakers.


Featuring the voice of Mary-Louise Parker as the influential writer and scientist, Rachel Carson is an intimate portrait of the woman whose groundbreaking books revolutionized our relationship to the natural world. When Silent Spring was published in September 1962 it became an instant bestseller and would go on to spark dramatic changes in the way the government regulated pesticides. Drawn from Carson’s own writings, letters and recent scholarship, the film illuminates both the public and private life of the soft-spoken, shy scientist who launched the modern environmental movement.


The screening is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required. It is part of The Conservation Lecture Series
