'Sand Wars' film looks at growing shortage of sand

Southern Oregon Climate Action Now will present the documentary "Sand Wars" in a meeting from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept, 29 at the Medford library, 205 S. Central Ave.

The documentary focuses on the growing shortage of sand due to human use of it for commercial and public works projects. The film also looks at the emergence of a "Sand Mafia" that is profiting from the shortage of sand that's usable for construction projects.

The session will also include a short presentation on the upcoming SOCAN Rogue Basin Climate Summit, scheduled for Oct. 13-14 in Medford. For more on the summit and SOCAN, see socan.info.
