Wild and Scenic Film Festival Nov. 17

hiker-984083_1920Come one, come all, to the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, Thursday, Nov. 17 at the Whiteside Theatre. The self-proclaimed largest film festival of its kind, the Wild and Scenic Film Festival is an educational and inspirational experience—a festival by activists for activists that celebrates the natural world.

This year’s festival will features an eclectic mix of 10 nature-inspired films. Scenic treats include tales of hiking the high desert, mountaineering adventures, and even a story about the first quadriplegic person to heli-ski the Alaskan backcountry. In these films, we find a common thread of individuals taking action and getting involved in tangible solutions.

Producers South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) hope to encourage communities to protect their watersheds and motivate individuals to get out and explore. SYRCL boasts over 30 years of successful activism and river protection.

Our friends at the Corvallis Environmental Center are co-hosting the event, so drop by and give them a big thanks, then head over to the Whiteside and get inspired.

Check out www.wildandscenicfilmfestival.org/events/corvallis-environmental-center/ for a list of films, and hit up the Whiteside for tickets: $12 per person, $10 with student ID, $8 under 18. Doors open at 6 p.m.
