Alpena, Mich. —┬áThe 2019 ‘Sanctuary Cinema Series’ continues on with “Chasing Ice.”

The film is about one man’s goal to gather undeniable evidence that the planet is changing. But before the film starts, a special demonstration will be taking place.

Hannah Hazewinkel, the education specialist for the Friends of Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, will be interpreting different data sets with ‘Science on Sphere.’
Folks can drop in and learn more about hurricane formations, sea currents in our world, and much more to get a better understanding of how our changing planet affects humans and our society.

“Climate change is an all encompassing issue,” said Hazewinkel. “It encompasses all disciplines of science and social science, it encompasses all countries and societies, every organism, every person on this planet is affected by climate change, so I think that it’s really important to communicate and help people understand this big issue.”

Hazewinkel will begin her presentation at 6:15 p.m. People can drop in at anytime before the film begins. “Chasing Ice” begins at 7:00 p.m. For more information, visit
