Eagle River Watershed Council will host the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Wednesday at the Riverwalk Theatre in Edwards. This is one of the largest environmental film festivals in North America and is nationally sponsored by Clif Bar, Klean Kanteen and Earth Justice, among others.

The Watershed Council hopes the film festival will increase community understanding of the connection we share with the planet, particularly our waterways — as well as our role as stewards to keep it all healthy for future generations.

Something for Everyone

The festival will feature 13 short films ranging from action and adventure to inspiration and environmental activism. Fly-fishermen, environmentalists, rafters, bikers, farmers, ranchers and animal lovers — there’s something for everyone. The films will focus on river issues and stories at the local level, as well as the connection humans have to global waterways.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. All attendees are entered into a prize drawing, plus there will be Colorado Native beer for sale, and a silent auction. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. and the show will start promptly at 6:15.
