Wolf Lake video shortlisted at film festival

A video on the threatened old-growth of Wolf Lake has made a film-festival shortlist and is showing at the 2014 Reel Paddling Film Festival World Tour.

Save Wolf Lake, produced for the Wolf Lake Coalition, is on the North American tour leg, and will cross the Atlantic in the fall. The schedule is available at Reel Paddling's website.

This is the second Wolf Lake video by Rob Nelson, intended to highlight the mining threat to the world's largest remaining red pine old-growth forest.

Wolf Lake Coalition is leading the broad-based group fighting to save the area and its rare forest.
