On Saturday, December 5 from 7-9pm, the Ausable River Association (AsRA) will be hosting a virtual “Wild & Scenic Film Festival.”
Inspired by the Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Nevada City California, it is designed to celebrate the beauty of wild places and the work being done to protect them.
For December 5, AsRA has chosen 12 films which will be showcased on their virtual platform. AsRA’s Executive Director Kelley Tucker, along with Donor Outreach Associate Tyler Merriam will introduce the films and establish their connection to the local natural world.
“The festival is a natural extension of AsRA’s work to inspire the public to get more involved in conservation efforts in their local communities,” Tucker said. “This year’s theme is hope, and each film is a visual gem that celebrates the planet and the tireless work being done to protect it.”
