Celebrate the conclusion of the 2015 season at Maryhill Museum, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 14-15. While you are visiting, lend a helping hand to food banks in Klickitat County during Maryhill's annual food drive.

‘Behind the Emerald Curtain’ screens Nov. 5 at Full Sail
On Thursday, Nov. 5, the nonprofit organization Pacific Rivers (formerly Pacific Rivers Council) is hosting a screening of its new film, “Behind the Emerald Curtain,” at Full Sail in Hood River, from 5-8 p.m. The movie starts at 6 p.m., is free admission and is suitable for all ages.
“The film exposes how Oregon’s laws for logging on private lands are harming clean water and healthy rivers. The phrase ‘Emerald Curtain’ refers to the beauty strips you see from the highways, where standing trees are left along the road to make you think you are driving through a healthy forest, when you are not,” event organizers said. Full Sail Tasting Room and Pub, 506 Columbia St., Hood River; 541-386-2247.
