The Office of Sustainability is partnering with The Green Omaha Coalition to bring South Yuba River Citizens League's (SYRCL) Wild & Scenic Film Festival, one of the nation's premier environmental and adventure film festivals, to Aksarben Cinema on Wednesday, Dec. 4 starting at 5:30 P.M.
The first half of the program will explore issues affecting water and land use and how flooding, drought, agriculture and environmental health are intricately tied. A panel discussion with UNO's Dr. Samantha Montano, professor of Emergency Management and Disaster Science, and Nate Belcher, Regenerative Ag Specialist and owner of Green Acres Cover Crops, will follow with a conversation about how these themes apply to Nebraska.
The second half of the program will show the various ways activists from diverse communities across America are working to preserve, restore and improve our natural environment. Arrive curious and leave inspired with a renewed appreciation for our wild and scenic planet.
