We are proud to bring the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival to Springfield as part of our Watershed Summer Gala, July 18th 5pm-8pm at the Springfield Art Museum.

A few of the films include:

‘Birdsongs-Yosemite Nature Notes’
Yosemite National Park’s beautiful landscapes contain unique soundscapes, and birders and ornithologists flock to the park to see and hear over 250 species of birds. Open your eyes and ears to the birdsongs of Yosemite!

‘California: Paradise Burning’
Since 2012, California has been suffering through a historically severe drought. For the farmers and ranchers of the Central Valley, the future seems especially bleak. Wells have gone dry, orchard as have been left to perish, and those who came to California to work the fields stand idle.

‘River of Eden’
Join filmmaker Pete McBride, a National Geographic Freshwater Hero, on a journey into the Fijian Highlands to discover why the locals said “no” to easy money from resource extraction, and how they turned to tourism to fund a conservation area that protects one of the most beautiful rivers on Earth.
