SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival inspires environmental activism and a love for nature–through film. Wild & Scenic shares an urgent call to action, encouraging festival-goers to learn more about what they can do to save our threatened planet.
The 5-day flagship festival is held annually in Nevada City and Grass Valley, California. Featuring 100+ films, workshops, visiting filmmaker and activist talks, family-friendly programs, art exhibitions, parties, and more–you won’t want to miss this festival!
Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest annual fundraiser for the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL). Locally, we raise funds and awareness to recover California’s wild salmon and protect the Yuba River watershed.
They take our festival On Tour to more than 250 events each year, partnering with groups who are working to protect and restore the important places in their communities. Globally, Wild & Scenic On Tour generates critical funds and increases awareness for grassroots environmental causes.
UMRWC has been committed to the protection and preservation of the Upper Merced River Watershed since its founding in 2001.
