The outdoors is a great place for family fun, and Trail Creek’s 15th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival was no exception. Taking place at Brandywine Red Clay Alliance’s Myrick Conservation Center, the event featured great music, delicious food, and an array of inspirational nature films.
The event was in support of Brandywine Red Clay Alliance and Stroud Water Research Center, which were both in attendance with informational booths and raffle items. Featured items included Eagles club-level tickets, wine baskets, and more.
The evening started with music by local musician Ed Dwornik and refreshments from On the Roll and Flying Deutschman food trucks. The large field was full of families and pets relaxing in the cool fall weather. An assortment of multicolored blankets and lawn chairs was spread along the grass. As the day turned to night, the sky turned beautiful shades of orange and purple.
The films featured in this year’s festival included a time-lapse video of ski tricks, the story of an elephant becoming a foster mother, and the journey of a record-shattering woman along several trails.
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a national event that features over 100 movies, all with the theme of Earth preservation. The festival is held in several venues across the country where select films are used to allow organizations to spread awareness about environmental issues.
The Stroud Center extends a special thank-you to Trail Creek Outfitters for hosting the event and for their continued service in the community.
The Stroud Center is also very grateful to the many sponsors, attendees, and in-kind donors for their continued support.
