(Mount Vernon) – The Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group (SFEG) is excited to bring the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to the Historic Lincoln Theater for one night only on Saturday, October 17th. This evening of short films will kick off with a reception starting at 6:30 pm in the Lincoln’s Art Bar followed by the film showing at 7:30 pm. The Film Festival will feature short films that will delight the senses, inform our minds and help us appreciate nature and the struggles to protect it. Films were selected from a collection of over 100 films shown at the annual film festival held in Nevada City, CA. The films capture the spirit of varying environmental movements across the globe and the relationship that they have to humanity and that humanity has to them. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival works with environmental groups across the globe to host On Tour events as a way to outreach into different communities and bring together a diverse audience. SFEG is thrilled to be selected as a host organization for this amazing film event and hopes the Film Festival will inspire a greater connection with our own Wild and Scenic Skagit River, as well as providing an evening of engaging fun.
SFEG is a nonprofit organization dedicated to engaging the community in restoring wild salmon populations for future generations. Salmon habitat enhancement is accomplished through habitat restoration, monitoring, and a wide variety of community outreach and education programs. SFEG offers free educational programs to over 1,500 students each year. These opportunities get students out of their classrooms and learning hands-on real science and watershed exploration which otherwise would not be available and affordable to local schools. Funds raised will go towards supporting these important education programs. They will also enable the program to continue to be offered free of charge to local schools.
