Et panel av folk som kjenner og setter pris på Alna vil svare på spørsmål og snakke om hvordan elven bør behandles for på beste måte å ta vare på det unike økosystemet og hvordan den gamel skogen rundt bør behandles.

Dørene åpnes i Kampen Menighetshus (plass til 60 personer). Kampen Kaffe & Bar serverer kaffe og te. Gratis adgang.
