On Tour Message
With the Thanksgiving Holiday right around the corner, the On Tour duo took a minute to consider what makes them thankful about our tour hosts here with Wild & Scenic.
“I am grateful for our Tour Hosts because they contribute amazing connection, funny anecdotes, respect for our hard work, long heartfelt conversations, compassionate thoughts and the pure joy we share in a successful event. I am in awe of their dedication and hard work and am grateful that I get to work with them every day!” – Theresa Huck
“I am thankful I get to spend every day at work connecting with people who are so passionate about what they do, whether it be a restoration coordinator, an enthusiastic angler, or a college student. The WSFF On Tour community is an incredible collection of individuals from every corner of the country who are full of empathy, open-minded, and eager to make a positive difference for the word, their communities, and the environment. I am grateful to be inspired by these people.” – Sarah Muskin

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!
