17 Years of Wild & Scenic Film Festival Raises $250K for Environmental Groups

992 1024 Stroud Water Research Center

In February, attendees and guests celebrated 17 years of environmental short films at Trail Creek Outfitters’ Wild & Scenic Film Festival. This year’s event was held at Upland Country Day School and featured another set of entertaining and inspiring films. From a fun and poignant sketch about a polar bear living among humans to a true story about a blind man experiencing amazing summits, the audience saw examples of global problems and solutions.

During the past 17 years, this event has raised more than $250,000 for environmental organizations including Stroud Water Research Center. This would not be possible without the generous support of local businesses and sponsors.

Attendees enjoyed food donated by the following: Barnard’s Orchards, Bravo Pizza, Harvest Market, Hood’s, Landhope Farms, Nomadic Pies, Northbrook Marketplace, Oso Sweet, Primo’s Hoagies of Avondale, Sovana Bistro, Spread Bagelry, Triple Fresh Market, Wegman’s, and The Whip Tavern.

Guests enjoyed wine sponsored by The Pancoast & Yacka Group – Your Local Chester County Realtors, beer from Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, and cider from Barnard’s Orchards. During intermission, attendees won raffles donated by Atwater Design, the many businesses of Glen Eagle Square, Henisee Pottery, Oxford Feed and Lumber, Patagonia, and Trail Creek Outfitters.

The Stroud Center gratefully acknowledges the many sponsors who made the event possible: GreenWeaver Landscapes, Fair Play Foundation, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Regester Associates, Wild Birds Unlimited of Hockessin, Embreeville Mill, Harvest Market, Laurel Valley Soils, Margot Mohr Teetor – ReMax Preferred Realtor, and Weeds Inc.
