Hood River photographer Peter Marbach will share stories and imagery from his current project documenting the landscapes and culture of the Columbia River, from its beginnings in Canal Flats, British Columbia, to the two-mile-wide confluence with the Pacific, at a free public lecture and slide show on Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m.

The Columbia River flows for over 1,200 miles, born free in the cradle of the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia. From its humble beginnings from a tiny spring you can straddle, to a two mile wide confluence with the Pacific Ocean, the river flowed for thousands of years in a natural state of astounding beauty. It was also the place of a miraculous ancient migration of Pacific salmon that came all the way home to the headwaters in Canada.

Visit the Hood River Library’s reading room on Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. to hear Peter Marbach discuss his work and show his photographs about the wild portion of the Columbia River. Marbach will also give a brief update on his entire Columbia River project. His work can be seen throughout the month of November in Library Lane.
