Wild & Scenic Film Festival
October 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The Wild and Scenic Film Festival hosted by the South Yuba River Citizens League stands out as a film festival that inspires and motivates community members to go out and make a difference locally and beyond. The Wild and Scenic Film Festival on Tour in Sacramento is based on this long-running and very successful film festival. We choose films for the Sacramento event that address issues relevant to our community. Themes include water quality and conservation, sustainable development, energy, food, agriculture, wildlife protection, environmental justice, habitat preservation and outdoor recreation.
This will be the ninth year that Habitat 2020 hosts a Sacramento festival. All proceeds benefit the California Heartland Project, a project of Habitat 2020 that includes increasing access to open space for education and recreation, protecting the unique biological diversity found in the Sacramento Valley and conserving our agricultural heritage.
Tickets will be available at the door, but space will be limited! It is recommended you buy them online as soon as possible.*

SILENT AUCTION AND RAFFLE
There will be a silent auction and raffle at the film festival to raise funds for the protection of local habitat in the Sacramento region. Come early to make sure you can check out the raffle prizes and the wonderful selection of photography and artwork up for silent auction! It’s a great opportunity to get that special gift for the holidays, treat yourself to a getaway or a new piece of house decor, and at the same time, invest in preserving our local ecosystems.
A GOOD CAUSE
The Hosts and Beneficiary – ECOS hosts this event in partnership with Save Our Sandhill Cranes, a non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining open space habitat and to the conservation of the California Central Valley’s Sandhill Crane populations through education, outreach, and community activism.
The chosen beneficiary of all festival proceeds is the California Heartland Project, the regional conservation vision of Habitat 2020, the conservation committee of ECOS. The California Heartland Project seeks to create a connected network of parks, preserves, and conservation easements on working farms and ranches–creating access to open space for education and recreation, protecting the unique biological diversity found in the Sacramento Valley, and conserving our agricultural heritage.
