The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is organized and produced by The South Yuba River Citizens League. Since 1983, the League protects and restores the rivers of the South Yuba watershed from source to sea. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival puts the League’s work into the broader environmental and social context.
In 1983, a small group banded together to oppose the construction of two dams on the South Yuba River. Over 25 years and thousands of supporters later, SYRCL (pronounced “circle”) stands stronger than ever.
The League has defeated the two dam projects. Now, 39 miles of the South Yuba have become permanently protected through state Wild and Scenic designation.
The Sierra Nevada Alliance event will also include a Wild Child Children’s Film Session from 3 to 5:30 p.m. on March 31. This session is family friendly and fun for kids of all ages. The session will feature a brief intermission.
