10th Anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Wild & Scenic Film Festival- Our 10 Year Anniversary!

What is the Wild & Scenic Film Festival?

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival was started by the watershed advocacy group, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), in 2003.  Read more here:  https://www.wildandscenicfilmfestival.org/about/.  The film festival has evolved into the largest environmental film festival in the nation.  The annual event each January in Nevada City, CA kicks off the nationwide tour to over 140 cities. We think the films are just too good, and the messages too powerful to keep them to ourselves. Come watch and see for yourself!

This Festival benefits Friends of the Kaw! We are hosting the 10th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival, and all proceeds from the event will benefit Friends of the Kaw and the Kansas Riverkeeper Program.

Please DONATE Today!

Please DONATE Today!

We’ve got plans for 2019 and we need your help!

Please consider donating to our program for the river….cleanups, enforcing the Clean Water Act, educating about the impacts of stormwater and representing the river in community discussions, to name a few. It’s not too late to get a tax deduction for 2018 by doing something good for the Kansas River. Donate online today, all donations go to our work for the river!  Thank you for your support!

Consider becoming a Sustaining Member. Over 800,000 Kansans depend on the Kaw for drinking water, and the river is home to many native plants and animals. The river has been designated a National Water Trail and is arguably the superior outdoor experience for the region.  We are funded entirely from memberships, donations and grants, so please donate today!

Thank you for your continued support of Friends of the Kaw and the Kansas Riverkeeper. Together we are protecting our river for present and future generations.
