The God Squad
and the Case of the Northern Spotted Owl
California Academy of Sciences hosts San Francisco premiere
Film highlights fight surrounding Northern Spotted Owl
Thursday, January 24, 2002

What: The California Academy of Sciences will host the San Francisco premiere of The God Squad Thursday, January 24, 2002. The film offers a behind-the-scenes look at the fight over the Northern spotted owl in Oregon and the fate of the Pacific Northwest's old growth forests and the Endangered Species Act. The story-behind-the-story, as told in surprisingly candid interviews with former President Bush's cabinet members (also known as the "God Squad"), scientists, lawyers, and residents of the Oregon area in question, is a fascinating cautionary tale.

The film lasts about an hour. Ms. Hart will answer questions after the screening. The Film Arts Foundation of San Francisco sponsored production of this film.

Where: California Academy of Sciences, Golden Gate Park

When: Thursday, January 24, 2002 7:30 pm
