CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa Center for Energy & Environmental Education (CEEE) continues its spring 2003 film and event series at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 6, in the Physics Building, Room 201.

The session 'Ready for Harvest: Clear-cutting in southern Appalachia,' will feature a documentary filmed in North Carolina that explores the interest of local people versus the interests of absentee corporations that cut and run. The session shows some similarities with the tension in Iowa communities over how hogs are raised. The film will be followed with a discussion.

The event is free and open to the public. The series will run through April 12. For more information, contact Kamyar Enshayan, staff member, UNI CEEE, at (319) 273-7575.
