About Trees Columbus Inc.: The Trees Columbus mission is to PLANT, PRESERVE and PROTECT trees.

Trees have a tremendous impact on our emotional well-being as well as the local economy. Our legacy tree canopy has been cut in half, with most of this loss coming from the last thirty years. Trees Columbus volunteers PLANT thousands of trees throughout our community. Our education programs PRESERVE tree canopy for generations to come. We also PROTECT trees through state and local advocacy.
Going On Tour
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival was started by the watershed advocacy group, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), in 2003. Over the past 12 years, it has evolved into the largest environmental film festival of its kind in the nation. The annual event each January in Nevada City, CA, kicks-off the nationwide tour to over 150 cities. Each tour stop is an opportunity for an organization to reach out into their community and bring people together around community-based activism. We offer a diverse menu of environmental films that delve into themes such as energy, climate change, conservation, wildlife, community activism, environmental justice, and adventure. Each venue custom builds their own film program to include issues they want to spotlight. Plus, we provide PR materials and a comprehensive planning guide. As an environmental group who has experienced amazing success with the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, we want to share our success with other organizations to create a network connected by a common goal – to use film to inspire activism!
