UPRIVER: A Watershed Film
115 SE Main Street, Minneapolis, MN 55414
Doors at 6:30 p.m., film at 7 p.m., panel discussion at 8 p.m.
Our next Moos presentation will feature a free big-screen showing of UPRIVER, a documentary that explores one of the nation’s most active river conservation movements. Within Oregon’s Willamette River system, the film focuses on people from all walks of life who are coming together to revive the health of this large river and the life it supports.
We hope this film inspires new thinking on watershed partnerships here in the Midwest – and how we might creatively share our conservation stories.
The post-show panel discussion will include:
- Carrie Jennings (Research and Policy Director, Freshwater)
- Jacques Finlay (Professor of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, University of Minnesota)
- John Whitehead (Filmmaker, Fretless Films)
- Patrick Moore (Emerging Systems Consulting)

Our 2022-23 Moos Family Speaker Series: The Critical Zone
Through the past two Moos Family Speaker Series events, we focused on soil health and hydrology by amplifying research on the Critical Zone (CZ) – the zone at Earth's land surface extending from the top of the vegetation canopy to the depths of groundwater. The critical zone supports terrestrial life through complex interactions between water, soil, rock, air, and life near Earth's surface, but humans have accelerated its erosion by up to nearly 10-fold in parts of Minnesota.
Spring 2023 Webinar: What is the Critical Zone? Part II
Fall 2022 Webinar: What is the Critical Zone?
Since 2010, Freshwater and the University of Minnesota College of Biological Sciences have co-hosted a free stimulating lecture series on water and the environment. The lectures, known as the Moos Family Speaker Series on Water Resources, honor the late Malcolm Moos, president of the university from 1967 to 1974. The series brings together influential experts on a broad array of topics and pairs a nationally known speaker with a panel of regional experts. They present the latest research on timely and important issues through an accessible—and often entertaining—presentation.
