Wild and Scenic Movies

This weekend, Save The Bay will host the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival. Established by the California-based South Yuba River Citizen’s League, the fest is part of the league’s efforts to promote community building and awareness of environmental issues through film. The beauty of the program is that while you are being taught about issues including the needs for a secure and pure water supply, and wilderness preservation, you are also being entertained by talented documentarians. The films provide a great context for Save The Bay’s 40th anniversary celebration. Films being shown include “Flathead Wild,” “The Edge of the Sea,” “Plastic Perils of the Pacific,” “New Amsterdam Market,” “Every Day at School” and “Watershed Revolution.”
