BRATTLEBORO- Marlboro College, in collaboration with Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center, will host the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in honor of Earth Day 2013. The Wild and Scenic Film Festival in Nevada City, CA, is the largest of its kind, featuring nearly 100 new movies on a range of environmental subjects. Created by the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), for the last six years the festival has been inspiring audiences across the country with screenings in museums, cinemas, and colleges like Marlboro.

“The Wild and Scenic Film Festival is an opportunity for community members to see some of the finest environmental films of the year, and to learn what they can do to make a difference in the world,” said Joan Carey, director of educational programs at BEEC. “The films we’ve chosen include first-rate storytelling focusing on wildlife and environmental activism, two themes important to us at BEEC.” Many of these new films have won awards.

Donations are welcome, and will benefit BEEC conservation programs. Donors of $20 or more will receive a BEEC family membership, a $45 value.
