Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Fest Friday Night (May 11) - "Environmental Threats & Solutions"

The second installment of the Wild & Scenic Film Fest is coming to the Evanston Ecology Center tomorrow night (Friday, May 11) from 7pm to 9pm. The theme of the evening's films will be "Environmental Threats and Solutions". These hand-picked short films tell the stories of individuals or groups who were faced with an environmetal problem and took determined action to address it.  
Last month's Wild & Scenic event was very well received by the "full house" that attended.  There will be a raffle tomorrow night of sponsor prizes at intermission.


Your kids can enjoy a great experience during this winter school break at an EcoFreeze mini-camp at the Ecology Center. Choose from 2 one-week sessions: Dec 20-24 or Dec 27-31. For Children K-5. For more details, go to http://www.cityofevanston.org/assets/ecology10-11.pdf
