Wild & Scenic focuses on films which speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet. The Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival was started by the watershed advocacy group, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) in 2003. The festival’s namesake is in celebration of SYRCL’s landmark victory to receive “Wild & Scenic” status for 39 miles of the South YubaRiver in 1999.
