The public is invited to the 2021 Conserve Sauk Film Festival on Saturday, November 6 from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM at UW-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County campus at 1006 Connie Rd, Baraboo, WI.
The 2021 Festival will include screenings of a wide array of conservation-focused films. Films including An American Ascent, Gather, Fantastic Fungi, and Felled will be featured at this year’s festival. The festival also has the honor of premiering the new documentary on the Baraboo River, Running Free: The Baraboo River Restoration Story. The film lineup can be found on the website at www.conservesaukfilmfest.org. The event will also include facilitated discussions on the films and their themes. Local organizations will share information about conservation efforts and opportunities for involvement.
Tickets are free, but registration is required for this event. Tickets are good for the entire event (10 AM until 5 PM) with unlimited reentry. Each attendee must have their own ticket. Tickets are available online through Eventbrite. All people on the UW-PBSC campus must wear a mask over their mouth and nose.
Conserve Sauk Film Festival is a collaborative event to educate attendees and participants about important resources, environmental challenges we face, best management practices that can be implemented on farms or in our own yards, and lessons we can draw from significant environmental history or historical figures. We hope to inspire creative thought, discussion, and potential solutions to these challenges.
