American Conservation Film Festival
Thursday, March 7 @ 12:00 pm - Sunday, March 10 @ 8:00 pm
Embark on a cinematic journey from March 7-10 as the American Conservation Film Festival presents an inspiring lineup of 23 shorts and 4 feature films, each illuminating the resilience of the human spirit. Delve into narratives that showcase individuals driving impactful change to enhance the health and biodiversity of our planet. These remarkable ‘heroes’ serve as a testament to the innate power within each of us – the power to innovate, unite, inspire, and catalyze transformation.
Their curated films explore the awe-inspiring landscapes of the Serengeti, the vital contributions of indigenous stewards, the alchemy of turning waste into art, and the formidable challenges presented by invasive species. Spanning the globe, our diverse selection transports you from the enchanting wilderness of South Africa to the cultural richness of Lebanon; from the rugged beauty of Wales to the vibrant tapestry of Mexico; and from the lush landscapes of Oregon to the mountains of Appalachia.
People who register for this event are able to attend a free group walk at Yankauer Nature Preserve with Kristin Alexander, PVAS Executive Director, as well as a lecture on Appalachian biodiversity!
