upcoming Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Join Bayou Land Conservancy when they host the Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour at the Star Cinema Grill in Vintage Park on Thursday, August 29th from 6 – 9:30 pm. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a collection of films from the annual festival held the third week of January in Nevada City, CA. Wild & Scenic focuses on films which speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet.

Featured at the tour event in Houston are 11 films sure to inspire! Aiden’s Butterflies follows young Aiden Wang, who has been growing milkweed to preserve endangered monarch butterflies since he was 6. Our Last Trash highlights the current global recycling crisis and the adverse effects of disposable plastics on the environment. We explore the meaning of a “zero waste” lifestyle, and how some individuals are combating this plastic issue one reusable item at a time. This year, Bayou Land Conservancy will show a local film from their Festival’s Underwriter Modern Woodmen of America.

The festival is a natural extension of Bayou Land Conservancy’s work to inspire people to act on behalf of the environment. “We envision protected networks of green spaces that connect people and nature,” says BLC’s Executive Director, Jill Boullion. “I hope the evening will inspire guests to join Bayou Land Conservancy in our mission to preserve land along streams for flood control, clean water, and wildlife.”
