The animated movie brings to life the classic story of an old man who collects acorns and other seedlings and revives a once deserted and barren wasteland and creates a beautiful environment for building homes and raising families. Guest speakers will highlight the importance of trees and how they breathe life into the world. Don’t miss out on this wonderful and educational event!
The Man Who Planted Trees is made possible by generous support from the Tan Sui Lin Foundation and the Mariana Islands Nature Alliance (MINA). First Friday Films is a monthly environmental film series from the National Park Service and the Division of Environmental Quality.
The Pacific Historic Parks (formerly the Arizona Memorial Museum Association) Bookstore, located inside the visitor’s center, will be open until 8:30 p.m. All proceeds go to community education programs.
For planning purposes, the movie runs about 85 minutes long. As always, First Friday Films is free and open to the public. Find more information about the film at www.firstfridayfilmssaipan.blogspot.com. Subscribe to the blog for regular updates on upcoming events.
