CITIZENS WATER ADVOCACY GROUP CELEBRATES THE WILD & SCENIC RIVERS ACT WITH ENVIRONMENTAL FILM FESTIVAL
The Citizens Water Advocacy Group is excited to join with the South Yuba River Citizens League to bring the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to central Arizona in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act of 1968. Arizona has approximately 90,373 miles of river, of which 57.3 miles are designated as wild & scenicâ€”less than 1/10th of 1% of the state’s river miles. Sections of the Verde River and Fossil Creek are the only two Wild & Scenic designations in Arizona.
The Citizens Water Advocacy Group, in partnership with Friends of the Verde River and Prescott Creeks is presenting two Wild & Scenic Film dates, Thursday, October 25th at the Elks Theatre in Prescott and Saturday, October 27th at the Cliff Castle Hotel in Camp Verde. Each venue will offer two different screenings, 3:30pm and 6:30pm. Each screening will present approximately 75 minutes of short films focusing on water, rivers, and wildlife. Whether depicting the struggle for environmental justice or an educational tale about an endangered species, the films expose people to forward-thinking ideas and global awareness. The film series is sponsored by The Nature Conservancy, Walton Family Foundation, and Arizona Public Service.
About the Wild & Scenic Film Festival:
The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL, pronounced â€˜circleâ€™) started the Wild & Scenic Film Festival in January 2003 to promote community building within the Yuba Watershed as well as a way to explore environmental issues through an exciting and influential medium.
The tour allows SYRCL to share their success with other environmental groups nationwide. By showing the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival to diverse audiences across the country, we collectively want to inspire more individuals to take environmental action.
