About this week's lecture:
ERRP Managing Director Pat Higgins is also a fisheries biologist and has been underwater all over the Eel River basin photo and video documenting fish since 2010. He is a fun presenter and he wants to share the good, the bad and the ugly. Videos of hundreds of Chinook salmon schooling at the mouth of the Middle Fork, swarms of coho juveniles in upper South Fork refugia, huge pikeminnow lying in wait to ambush native fish juveniles, territorial green sunfish dancing, and even balling catfish. Along the way, Pat will address the status and trends of Pacific salmon species and what we can do to help them have a better chance of survival in the face of climate change.

A Pandemic Poetry Reading with Laureate David Holper

Posted By on Sun, Apr 4, 2021 at 11:23 AM

When the city council appointed David Holper Eureka’s first poet laureate in 2019, it was supposed to last a year. Then again, a lot of things turned out differently than planned in 2020 and the term was extended. You can watch Holper’s live reading via Zoom and on Public Access Channel 8 on Tuesday, April 6 at 2 p.m.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit Humboldt, Holper has responded by helping create outlets and community spaces through poetry. The stated mission of the Poetry on the Edge Facebook group he started describes itself as being “about living on the edge of the continent, on the edge because of the crazy pandemic we’re living in, and because words give us a way to explore both the shadows and the light.” Taking that exploration to other mediums, he’s also helped bring about a show of poetry and art at the Brenda Tuxford Gallery and is working on the upcoming David Josiah Lawson Oration Festival.

Holper also worked with Anne Frick to assemble and publish Behind the Mask, an anthology of local poets’ work created about and during the pandemic, which you can download here. As for what he’s been working on himself, his subject matter has shifted over the events of the last year.

RCT's Bloomsday Back for One Night Only

Posted By on Fri, Mar 26, 2021 at 12:00 PM

Jaunt back to the Emerald Isle with Redwood Curtain Theatre to revisit a sweet, heartwarming love story whose telling was cut short by unforseen circumstances. In March of 2020, the pandemic shut down the final performances of RCT’s Bloomsday when there was so much more love (and brilliant perfomances) to give. ’Twas a cryin’ shame.

Back for one night only, the original cast reunites for a live staged reading of Steven Deitz’ Irish time-travel love story on Sunday, March 28 at 6 p.m. via Zoom (free,$5 suggested donation).

From the Redwood Curtain press release:
"Bloomsday tells the story of Robert who returns to Dublin to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart during a tour thirty-five years ago. Dancing backwards through time, the older couple retrace their steps to discover their younger selves. Through young Robbie and Caithleen, they relive the unlikely, inevitable events that brought them – only briefly – together. This Irish time travel love story blends wit, humor and heartache into a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it’s past."

Register for this special performance in advance at www.redwoodcurtain.com. Yeats be glad ye did!
