CES, Rice Rivers Center part of Wild & Scenic Film Festival

March 5, 2018

March 14th is International Action Day for Rivers and 2018 is the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Wild & Scenic Rivers Act.

In celebration, the VCU chapter of the River Management Society's River Studies & Leadership Certificate Program, with support from Patagonia, Vasen Brewery, and the James River Outdoor Coalition, is hosting the Wild & Scenic Film Festival featuring 10 short films spanning the watershed from the summit to sea. The Center for Environmental Studies and Rice Rivers Center are part of the program and researchers will be in attendance.

The event starts at 7 p.m., March 14 at Vasen Brewery, located at 3331 W Moore Street in Scott's Addition, in Richmond, not far from VCU’s Monroe Park Campus. Updates and links to ticketing are here. Tickets are limited.

The River Studies and Leadership Certificate (RSLC) Program is an interdisciplinary program that combines learning about river science, geographic information systems (GIS), policy and river field experience with a chosen emphasis in one of three areas: river science, river-based policy, or river-based education, recreation and tourism.  RSLC students demonstrate “real-world” application of their knowledge and skills through professional experience or an internship with a river project.

Proceeds from ticket sales and a silent auction will be used to support the professional development of VCU river certificate students in the form of small grants for novel river-focused service and scholarship.

View the films to be screened at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival.
