Today marks 50 years of river protection from the Federal Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. The Act has saved many of America’s most treasured rivers from dams and development. However only 1% of California’s rivers are designated wild and scenic.
“Run Wild Run Free,” a film by Shane Anderson from Pacific Rivers, takes the viewer through the history to the present of Wild and Scenic as told through experts, grassroots organizers, white water enthusiasts, and members of the Nez Perce tribe in Idaho. You can watch this exclusive film for only the next 3 days before it is pulled down for film festivals and screenings.
This film will also be featured at the “Wild and Scenic Celebration!” free event in Volcano, CA this Friday Oct 5 from 7-10pm. We hope to see you there!
