WHY THIS MATTERS
Motivation to take on the world’s most pressing environmental challenges often stems from a personal connection to nature and the resources involved Through the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, we will present several short films that will inspire festival goers to get outdoors, appreciate the natural wonders in our local and greater environment, and work toward finding common ground and collaborative solutions for environmental problems. Attendees will be empowered and encouraged to take action, become volunteers and members of participating organizations, and find personally meaningful ways to affect positive change for the natural world we inhabit.
