Oregon Wild is a proud sponsor of the 2023 Eugene Environmental Film Festival, running from September 29 through October 8.
The films look fantastic, showcasing everything from bumblebees and wolverines here in Oregon, to sustainability efforts in Africa and climate activism around the world.
In addition to film screenings at The Art House in downtown Eugene, EEFF has partnered with several local organizations for 10 Days of Action so that festival participants can learn more about how to be stewards and advocates for the environment.
Oregon Wild’s Day of Action is Saturday, October 7 and we've got three ways to get involved!
- Visit our table in the lobby all day in between films to learn more about our current campaigns, meet our staff, and sign up for more information.
- Guided Walk: Alsea Falls
- 9:30am - 2:30pm. Registration required - more info here.
Get to know a local forest and a beautiful river on nearby public lands, one hour from Eugene. We’ll walk amongst the trees, get to know the mosses, mushrooms, and plants that make up the forest floor, and admire the South Fork Alsea River. This walk is designed for everyone - whether you're an experienced hiker, or brand new to getting outdoors. More information and sign up here.
- Workshop: Advocating for Public Lands and Rivers
- 3:00-4:00pm in The Art House courtyard. No registration necessary.
We know you care about our planet, the people on it, and the natural world, but it can feel daunting to know how to get involved to make a difference for these things you value. Here in Oregon, we treasure our pristine waters; our ancient forests; beautiful places to hike, camp, bike, and boat; and the fish and wildlife that also call them home. It’s no accident that there are still wild places and rivers to enjoy - advocates from all walks of life have taken action - from writing letters to meeting with legislators - to ensure this is the case. In this workshop, Oregon Wild staff will break down how to make a difference for our public lands and wild rivers, and help you go beyond watching inspiring films to taking action for the natural world in your backyard. Appropriate for all ages.
