Wild & Scenic Film Fest

Every February, the Evanston Environmental Association (EEA) and the City of Evanston co-present the two-evening Wild & Scenic Film Festival at the Ecology Center in Evanston, Illinois. 

The Wild & Scenic is organized and produced by SYRCL (the South Yuba River Citizens League), and was started in part to help environmental organizations like the EEA grow their membership.

The festival offers a line-up of the best in environmental and adventure short films covering a variety of topics relevant to those concerned with our planet. The Evanston festival has grown in popularity each year since it was first started in 2012.
