Oregon Wild, Soul River Inc., and the Portland EcoFilm Fest presents: Reel Talk: Beyond the Big Fish

Join us for an afternoon of two short films and a panel discussion focused on conservation, inclusive outdoor spaces, and social justice. 

The event will include screenings of the new short film CHANDALAR, which profiles Soul River's work bringing veterans and youth together in outdoor immersion programs on public lands, and Mic Crenshaw's new environmentally-focused music video EARTHBOUND. The films will be followed by a panel discussion about diversity in environmental advocacy and how we all can play a role in building a more diverse community of public lands users and advocates.

With special guest and social justice advocate, Sharon Gary-Smith.

The film screening is part of an exciting partnership between Oregon Wild and Soul River Inc. that will also take a group of youth and military veterans on a “deployment” into the secluded Ochoco Mountains and develop skills to take their conservation advocacy to the next level. 

We hope to see you there!
