Friends of Black Rock - High Rock are partnering with SYRCL to bring the festival to Reno this Saturday, January 25th, at the Whitney Peak Hotel in downtown Reno!
The film selection for the Reno showing is really exciting with features like Surviving: The Story of the Lahontan Cutthroat Trout chronicling the triumphant return of the once desiccated lake and its native fish who have made a near impossible and triumphant return through the efforts of biologists, tribal litigators, and a carpenter. Short film Lost in Light portrays the importance of dark skies by discussing the effects of light pollution and our view of the cosmos. Come out this weekend and get inspired by tales of triumph, adventure, and breathtaking natural beauty.
SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival is now in its 18th year of inspiring environmental activism and a love for nature–through film. Wild & Scenic shares an urgent call to action, encouraging festival-goers to learn more about what they can do to save our threatened planet. The festival goes on tour to more than 250 events each year, partnering with local conservation groups who are working to protect and restore important places in their communities, and generating critical funds while increasing awareness for grassroots environmental causes.
Friends of Nevada Wilderness will be there tabling and supporting this educational and inspirational event. Stop by the table and say hi, get signed up to volunteer this season, and get motivated to get out on the ground enjoying, and taking care of, your public lands.
