San Antonio River Authority Celebrating National Rivers Month with Environmental Film Festival


  • Sky Migrations
In partnership with the South Yuba River Citizens League’s (SYRCL) Annual Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival, the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) is presenting its fifth annual film festival in celebration of National Rivers Month in June. The fest will screen national and international shorts focused on issues such as nature, adventure, wildlife, environmental justice and conservation.

Included in the 14-film lineup are The Shape of a River, a short film on the “power and fragility of the mighty Yellowstone”; The Invisible Mammal: The Bat Rescuer, a film on a California-based organization that provides care for injured bats; and Lost in Light, a short documentary on how light pollution affects the view of the sky at night. Other topics covered in some of the shorts include Oregon’s Wild Rivers Coast and the state’s Owyhee Canyonlands, migrating raptors such as hawks, eagles and vultures, and the conservation efforts in the country of Guyana.

The fest will also recognize individuals and organizations that have helped raise awareness of watershed issues during its Watershed Wise Awards.

Free, Tue Jun 12, 6-9pm, Santikos Palladium, 17703 I-10 W., (210) 798-9949,
