A week after President Donald “Global Warming Is a Chinese Hoax” Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate accord, the fight for ecological awareness continues with the fourth annual Environmental Film Festival hosted by the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) in commemoration of National Rivers Month. The festival will feature national and international short films covering a variety of issues, including nature, wildlife, environmental justice and conservation. “It is my hope that everyone attending the event will leave educated and inspired to take their own actions to help protect the natural resources of our watershed,” said Suzanne Scott, general manager at SARA. Films screening include Our Wonderful Nature: the Common Chameleon, Selah: Water from Stone, Native Waters: Rio Grande and The Last Resort and Douglas Tompkins: A Wild Legacy. Along with the screenings, SARA will recognize eco-friendly individuals and organizations across Texas during the Watershed Wise Awards. This year’s award winners include Michael Burke of the Mission Verde Alliance and Art Dohmann of the Goliad County Groundwater Conservation District.
