April 27: Bioneers Monday with Wangari Maathai film

April 27:  Bioneers Monday.  Join the Three Rivers Bioneers and Friends of the Pittsburgh Urban Forest as we bring a special screening of Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai to the Kelly Strayhorn Theater on April 27th at 6:30pm. 

Taking Root tells the dramatic story of Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate (and University of Pittsburgh alum) Wangari Maathai whose simple act of planting trees grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment, protect human rights, and defend democracy. 

The event is free, and open to the public, with performance by Vanessa German and reception to follow. Special thanks to the Sprout Fund for their support!  For more information, contact Maureen at
