Join us for a Wild & Scenic Event THIS Sunday, August 5th at 7:30 pm at the Nevada Theatre for an evening of film and discussion on The Future of Our State Parks, a fundraiser for SYRCL’s first film about how youth helped save South Yuba River State Park (SYRSP).
At this event you will see short films about California’s state parks, meet the young filmmakers of The First 70 in its Nevada County premiere, learn about pending legislation in the House & Senate that would protect parks, meet the youth activists who were instrumental in the removal of SYRSP from the closure list, hear from experts about the role youth play in using and protecting public lands, and much more.
The First 70 is a short film that showcases an inspiring journey through California to visit the 70 majestic state parks slated to close. Three young filmmakers set out last May on a 3,000 mile trip around California after the state announced plans to close one quarter of their 279 parks. The First 70 beautifully portrays the individuals who have put their heart and soul into maintaining and caring for these remarkable resources. Our local youth & SYRCL play a prominent role in the film.
Tickets available in advance at the SYRCL office, the Briar Patch Co-Op, or at the door. Ticket prices are adults: $10 (advance)/$12 (door) & students (k-12): $7. RSVP for this event on Facebook. This event is presented by the South Yuba River Citizens League and the Nevada Theatre.
