A day or two spent with mountains, canyons, or rivers, equals a year of therapy. Under the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act (10/2/68), selected rivers of the United States “… with their immediate environments, possess outstandingly remarkable scenic, recreational, geologic, fish and wildlife, historic, cultural or other similar values, shall be preserved in free-flowing condition … shall be protected …”

Nevada County, California recently hosted the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, showcasing over 120 environmental and adventure films. A few people interviewed with regional and national concerns, and solutions: The Woolman Semester School (alternative school), San Juan Ridge Taypayers Association (gold miners v. clean drinking water), Sierra Club (overpopulation), Citizens Climate Lobby, Alaskans First Campaign (save the Chuitna River), American Rivers, Friends of the River, Sierra Nevada Geoengineering Awareness, and United for the Yuba. Western India farmers and lions are discussed regarding the award-winning film, “Pride.”
