Osprey is a national sponsor of the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival (WSEFF). WSEFF was started in the Sierra Nevada foothills by the watershed advocacy group, the South Yuba River Citizen's League, www.syrcl.org. In 1983, a small group of citizens banded together to form SYRCL and fight for the protection against several proposed dams. In 1999, their successful lobbying awarded them Wild & Scenic status for 39 miles of the South Yuba River. Held annually the third week of January, the 3-day event features award-winning films, plus speakers, celebrities, and activists who bring a human face to the environmental movement and the actions being taken in our communities. SYRCL is now sharing their success with other environmental groups to host tour venues nationwide. It is building a network of grassroots organizations connected by a common goal, to use film to inspire activism!
