Wild and Scenic Film Festival
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is in town at USM this Saturday. You can buy tickets online, but do it soon because they do sell out with last-minute purchases. You will also want to show up early to snag a seat in the main auditorium (they also have a smaller room going at the same time, but the main auditorium is where the action (and big screen) is. There is free swag and a raffle of great stuff, and the parking is free in the USM garage. The kids and I went last year - some of the messages were a bit doom-and-gloom, which left us a bit to process (ocean acidification, agrochemistry, and the Great Pacific Gyre), but overall it was a great, expansionary experience that got them thinking about positive solutions to some of life's big issues.
