Mountain Lake PBS and the Lake George Association will host a free public screening of Lake Defenders, a 30-minute documentary highlighting the challenges of aquatic invasive species management in the Lake George basin, at the Charles R. Wood Theater in Glens Falls at 7 PM on October 7th.
Mountain Lake PBS has been seeking carriage on Time Warner Cable in Warren and Washington counties, and this event in Glens Falls seeks to raise community support for that effort.
Mountain Lake PBS was chartered to serve Warren and Washington counties, but is not carried by the local cable provider, Time Warner cable, which means that communities are missing out on locally created content – not only programs and documentaries that inspire and entertain, but debates and public forums that are essential to creating an informed public.
Attendees will be invited to watch the film, meet and greet with Mountain Lake PBS staff, and then sign on to a petition requesting that Time Warner Cable include Mountain Lake PBS on their channel lineup in Warren and Washington counties.
The documentary is part of the educational mission of Mountain Lake PBS, based in Plattsburgh, NY. “This is just one example of the many Adirondack stories we have produced. We strive to tell local stories, and bring them to a much wider audience,” said Alice Recore, President & CEO of Mountain Lake PBS.
Speakers at the event will include State Senator Betty Little, Mountain Lake PBS President & CEO Alice Recore, and Lake George Association Executive Director Walt Lender.
