Celebrate the North Yuba River at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival
The famous Wild and Scenic Film Festival is headed north to the historic Yuba Theatre in Downieville on September 24 and 25, 2010. Show time is 7:00 p.m. each night.
Nestled in the North Yuba canyon, a stone’s throw from the Yuba River itself, the Yuba Theatre is the perfect place to enjoy this exciting series of adventure, nature, and environmental films.
You’ll experience the adrenalin of kayaking the wildest rivers, climbing the highest peaks, and trekking across the globe with adventure films from around the world. You’ll explore the issues and movements with leading environmental activists and professionals, filmmakers, and celebrities. And you’ll celebrate the natural and wild world in ways you never dreamed possible.
Join the North Yuba Watershed Clean-up
The Yuba River is the lifeblood of the Northern Sierra. We drink its water and renew our spirit on its banks. The Wild and Scenic Film Festival, North Yuba Edition is being held in tandem with watershed clean-up throughout the Sierra, which will be organized along the North Yuba by James Berardi, principal of Downieville School, in cooperation with the Sierra County Firesafe and Watershed Council. The river clean-up activities will start Saturday morning, September 25, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. For more information and to sign up call James Berardi at Downieville School at (530) 289-3473.
The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), host of the original Wild & Scenic Festival in Nevada City, will also be part of a coordinated effort by many groups to give back to the river that gives us so much.
General admission is $12, children under 12 and seniors 65 and over are $8. Admission includes a chance to win fabulous prizes donated by the sponsors of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival and by local supporters of the Sierra County Arts Council.
