‘The True Cost of Oil’ returns to Davis

The grandeur and beauty of Canada’s untouched boreal forests and temperate rainforest — and the threats posed to them by the Alberta Tar Sands mines — will be showcased in a slide-show talk presented by environmental photojournalist Garth Lenz on Tuesday, April 16.

Lenz will narrate the natural history of the region in his presentation, “The True Cost of Oil,” as he shows his photographs — most taken from the air — that demonstrate the massive scale and destruction of the tar sands tailing ponds and mines already in operation.
