Wild and Scenic Film Festival- March 14

March 14th is International Action Day for Rivers & 2018 is the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Wild & Scenic Rivers Act.

In celebration, the VCU chapter of the River Management Society’s River Studies & Leadership Certificate Program with support from Patagonia, Vasen Brewery, and the James River Outdoor Coalition is hosting the Wild & Scenic Film Festival featuring 10 short films spanning the watershed from the summit to sea.

The event starts at 7 pm at Vasen Brewery @ 3331 W Moore Street in Scott’s Addition, Richmond, Virginia. Updates and links to ticketing are here. Tickets are limited.

The River Studies and Leadership Certificate Program is an interdisciplinary program that combines learning about river science, geographic information systems (GIS), policy and river field experience with a chosen emphasis in one of three areas: river science, river-based policy, or river-based education, recreation and tourism.  RSLC students demonstrate “real-world” application of their knowledge and skills through professional experience or an internship with a river project.

Proceeds from ticket sales and a silent auction will be used to support the professional development of VCU river certificate students (e.g., small grants for novel river-focused service and scholarship).
