Midsummer Melt brings awareness to melting glaciers in our own backyard

JACKSON, WY – Presented by the Center for the Arts, Midsummer Melt is a special performance by Grammy Award-winning artists Portugal. The Man to benefit The Alpine Science Institute (ASI) of Central Wyoming College (CWC) and Protect Our Winters (POW), on Monday, August 12.

The sold-out event will feature Wyoming PBS’s “Glaciers of the Winds”, a documentary film that captures CWC’s Alpine Science Institute’s Interdisciplinary Climate Change Expedition (ICCE), where scientists have documented the recession of glaciers in the Wind River Mountains and its effects on farmers, ranchers, and wildlife. After the screening, POW will host a panel discussion and conversation. The evening will culminate in an intimate performance of award-winning rock by Portugal. The Man!

Portugal. The Man’s members are strong advocates for social justice and climate change. The event came about because Riverton native and friend of the band, Jeff Stanbury saw “Glaciers of the Winds”, texted the band, and shared how impressed he was with ASI’s ICCE work. They responded by saying, “We love it, what can we do to help?”

Lucky ticket holders will be treated to a raffle and silent auction with awesome prizes including Jones and Gemenstick Splitboards, an Alaskan luxury adventure to Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, a guided float trip on the Bighorn River with Sweetwater Flyfishing Expeditions, art by snowboarder Bryan Iguchi, Skullcandy Headphones, autographed posters created by Wooden Cyclops and a Fender guitar donated by PTM!
