30th Anniversary of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill: March 24, 2019

The 30th Anniversary of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill is on March 24, 2019. To commemorate this anniversary a series of public outreach events and products have been made available. These materials made be used by venues in and out of the spill-impacted region and to raise awareness. The EVOS Trustee Council extends it appreciation to all those who contributed their time and expertise to these excellent products.

A SHORT FILM“Listening to the Sound: The work of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council” (approx. 18 min). This film includes historic footage of the spill, new interviews and information on the scientific and habitat work funded by the Trustee Council since the spill.

A SOCIAL MEDIA CLIP based on the short film is being produced and will be available on the EVOSTC webpage at a later date.

A POSTER available for display alongside the film or media clip is available here.

Additional information about a TRAVELING DISPLAY and HOSTING VENUES are available on the EVOSTC Website. The EVOSTC office can be contacted (907-278-8012) about borrowing a display for your organization.  A collection of Exxon Valdez Oil Spill materials, FAQs, links, and resources has also been compiled by the Alaska Resources Library and Information Services (ARLIS).
