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!  Learn more about the Wild & Scenic Film Festival!

This Festival benefits Friends of the Kaw! We are hosting the 13th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival, and all proceeds from the event will benefit Friends of the Kaw and the Kansas Riverkeeper Program.

FREE Education Tickets, first come first serve.  Email request for FREE tickets to:   info@kansasriver.org.  Courtesy of EVERGY’S GREEN TEAM! Learn more: https://kansasriver.org/wsff/

2021 By the Numbers

Dear Supporter of Friends of the Kaw,

Thank you to everyone that joined us all year long to celebrate 30 years of Friends of the Kaw! This success is due in part to many people, including our members, donors and volunteers, that give all year long.

We hope you can join us on February 25, 2022 for our 11th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival at Liberty Hall in Lawrence where we will show our documentary about the 30-year history of our organization during the film festival.

We are asking you to please consider a donation to Friends of the Kaw so that we can continue to fund our work to patrol the Kansas River, clean up tire and dump sites, educate adults and youth alike, and advocate from the county to the Statehouse on behalf of our river. Thank you, to each one of you reading this letter today. Our members and volunteers are the real success story of Friends of the Kaw. We hope that you will consider Friends of the Kaw worthy of your year-end donation to fund our programs for 2022!

For the river,

Dawn Buehler

Kansas Riverkeeper & Executive Director
