In celebration of National Rivers Month, the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) teams up with the South Yuba River Citizens League’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival to screen a selection of national and international short films about nature, adventure, wildlife, environmental justice and conservation. Free, but limited to the first 200 attendees to arrive, the five-hour program highlights a number of shorts from 2014 — including Spaceship Earth Passenger Briefing (6:10pm), The Wilderness Act 50th Anniversary (8:42pm) and Monarchs & Milkweed (8:50pm) — as well as SARA General Manager Suzanne Scott’s TEDxSan Antonio 2014 talk “Confessions of the San Antonio River” and “The Mission Reach: Restoring the San Antonio River” (7:10-8:25pm). In addition to the films, the second annual event features information tables from a variety of environmental groups, including Alamo Area Master Naturalists, Sierra Club Alamo Group, Bat Conservation International, and Green Spaces Alliance of South Texas.
