Description: Screening of Finding David Douglas, a documentary about the pioneer West Coast botanist, with Q&A by the filmmaker, Lois Leonard.
The compelling story of the intrepid 19th century Scots botanist David Douglas is told in this tri-national production. Finding David Douglas transports viewers to England and Scotland; treks through locations in Oregon, Washington, California and British Columbia; sweeps across the high Canadian Rockies to remote York Factory on Hudson Bay; and reaches Douglas’s mysterious final destination on the Big Island of Hawaii. The film focuses on Douglas’s groundbreaking contributions to science – the Douglas fir and many more plant and animal species are named for him. It details his relations within the multi-cultural community of the Hudson’s Bay Company and the many Indian tribes he visited. This hour-long documentary is produced by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission in collaboration with Forestry Commission Scotland and the U.S. Forest Service.
