So many businesses and organizations have responded to this crisis in really interesting and creative ways. The Blue Mountain Land Trust (BMLT), for example, kicks off its Learning on Land series with the Wild & Scenic Film Festival inspiring environmental activism and a love for nature–through film.
Typically held in Maxey Auditorium on Whitman College campus, a lecture hall doesn’t exactly follow any rules right now. Why not online? And that is just what the hard working folks at the land trust put together.
Over eight-weeks beginning April 20, BMLT will stream a selection of short films that illustrate the challenges facing our planet and explore how communities are protecting the places they love.
Each week, they will release a new lineup of films that conveys a broader theme of environmental activism. Additionally, three weeks of films are geared toward kids and include activities that compliment the films.
Outside Walla Walla is proud to sponsor this year’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival. The Blue Mountain Land Trust is a wonderful organization doing great work throughout the region. We definitely plan our calendar around Blues Crew work parties and Learning on the Land events–all great ways to reconnect in the future. Stay well everyone.
