Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Pennsylvania Resources Council is excited to announce that we will again be partnering with Allegheny CleanWays to host the 6th Annual Pittsburgh Wild & Scenic Film Festival presented by SYRCL (South Yuba River Citizens League). The Wild & Scenic Film Festival features a series of short films that explore the issues of protection and restoration of wild lands and waters, food systems, climate change, biodiversity, and much more. These films allow Pennsylvanians to witness how individuals and communities around the world are taking action, with the hope that they will become inspired to take action in their own communities.
