The Wild and Scenic Film Festival on Tour in Sacramento features a program of short films that ECOS/Habitat 2020 specially designs to focus on the ecosystems and environmental justice struggles in our area, and to inspire action by citizens to protect the planet. Themes of the film program this year include water conservation, the role of rivers to humans and the planet, climate change and its effects, sustainable agriculture practices, wildlife protection, outdoor adventures and beautiful landscapes. We continue to make this film festival a lasting and rewarding annual event to inspire communities in Sacramento to enjoy and protect wild and scenic places close to home.
Silent Auction and Raffle
We host a silent auction and raffle at the film festival to raise funds for the protection of local habitat in the Sacramento region. Come early to make sure you can check out the raffle prizes and the wonderful selection of photography and artwork up for silent auction! It’s a great opportunity to get that special gift for the holidays, treat yourself to a getaway or a new piece of house decor, and at the same time, invest in preserving our local ecosystems.
The chosen beneficiary of all festival proceeds is the California Heartland Project, the regional conservation vision of Habitat 2020, the conservation committee of ECOS. The California Heartland Project seeks to create a connected network of parks, preserves, and conservation easements on working farms and ranches–creating access to open space for education and recreation, protecting the unique biological diversity found in the Sacramento Valley, and conserving our agricultural heritage.
