10/10/2013

613 RIversville Road, Greenwich, CT

6:00-9:00 pm Over 80,000 chemicals flow through our system of commerce, and many are going straight into our bodies.

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. Film at 7:00 pm. $12/adult & $5/under 21. More film & event details online. Events are 6-9 pm. RSVPs are appreciated to greenwichcenter@audubon.org or by voicemail to 203-869-5272 x239.
