“Hear Our Olympics” film screening and panel

Join us for Seattle’s premiere screening of our short film, “Hear Our Olympics,” followed by a discussion panel moderated by Seattle Times environmental reporter Lynda Mapes!

Come explore the incredible soundscape of Olympic National Park in our new short film, “Hear Our Olympics.” Following the film, a panel will discuss their experiences in the park and how noise intrusions have impacted them. You will hear from:

  • Lynda Mapes, Seattle Times Environmental Reporter
  • Filmmaker Matt Mikkelson of Spruce Tone Films
  • Dave Youngberg, a Navy veteran featured in the film
  • Rob Smith, NPCA Northwest Director

About the Film: The wild Olympic Peninsula is like nowhere else. It has been recognized as a national park, a wilderness area, an International Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site, and the quietest space in the lower 48. Yet, the park’s rare and distinctive soundscape is threatened by new and unnatural noises: Navy electronic warfare training by jet in the skies over the park. “Hear Our Olympics” examines this threat and the challenges it poses to the park’s soundscape as well as to U.S. military veterans.
