Wild and Scenic Film Festival draws a crowd
● By J. Chambless
Guests left the ninth Annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival last weekend feeling inspired.
"A Change of Course" was the theme of the two-night event held at the Chester County Historical Society and hosted by Trail Creek Outfitters. Topics of the environmental short films included a father-daughter trip to the Antarctic, life on the Sitkine River, and pollution of Alaskan waters by mining operations in British Columbia.
Attendees of all ages were treated to a great selection of hors d’oeuvres from a variety of local restaurants including Nourish Juice Bar, Triple Fresh Market, Rapidough Pizza, Roots Café, and The Whip Tavern. Barnard’s Orchards provided cider, while Dogfish, Paradocx Vineyard, and Country Vintner offered libations.
Proceeds equally benefitted Stroud Water Research Center (www.stroudcenter.org) and The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County (www.tlcforscc.org). The 10th annual event is already scheduled for next February.
