Join us for a screening of the “American Experience” documentary of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, which chronicles the life and work of Rachel Carson, a biologist for the federal government whose research into unregulated use of pesticides and herbicides, sparked a warning that helped awaken the consciousness of the modern environmental movement.

A short presentation and a question-and-answer session by representatives of the Rachel Carson Homestead Association will follow the film screening. PHLF played an active role in saving and preserving Rachel Carson’s birthplace in Springdale, Pennsylvania.
