“Shawnee Showdown” will be shown at Harrisburg Middle School on March 14
A free screening of the documentary film by a Southern Illinois University Carbondale professor that retraces the battle over commercial logging within the Shawnee National Forest more than three decades ago will be shown next week in Harrisburg.

Bursell, along with local environmental activists who participated in the protests in the late 1980s and early 1990s and who remain active today will also be present for a panel discussion and Q&A after the film.
The film trailer is available for viewing. The film is free and open to the public; facemasks will be required.
