Earth Day is a bittersweet celebration of our planet. We celebrate the planet's majesty but also reflect on how finite the Earth is. During the daily hustle, sometimes the Earth gets put on the back burner. Well the Egyptian Theatre is doing its part to pinch the public and wake them up from their dream of infinite natural resources by hosting the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, presented by the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley.
Boise is just one of many stops for the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, which is one of the most prestigious environmental film festivals in the nation. On Saturday, April 23, there will be two screenings, one beginning at 4 p.m. and one beginning at 7 p.m. These films will highlight some of the environmental issues that are troubling us today. The goal of the Land Trust is to heighten awareness for the wild areas that surround us in the Treasure Valley, and the proceeds will benefit the conservation of Idaho land.[ Video is no longer available. ]
