Earth Day Weekend Celebration: April 22 – 23, 2022

This year we have partnered with the iconic Wild and Scenic Film Festival, the Net Loft, and Cordova Gear to bring you a safe and fun Earth Day celebration weekend! On April 22, 2022 there will be an in-person film festival event for Cordova community members and the event will also be LIVE-streamed so that the films can also be enjoyed from the comfort of your home, no matter where you live! We have selected films that we feel celebrate and advocate for the environment, fish, social justice, and wild spaces for future generations. Following the film festival on Saturday, April 23rd the Net Loft and Cordova Gear will be hosting watercolor workshops with Max Romey – film maker of the film, “To Give a Beach a Bottle” which will be featured during the film festival!

Join us on Friday, April 22, 2022 for the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to benefit the Copper River Watershed Project.
