9th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival!

OARS is proud to host our 9th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival, a selection of 2017 award-winning films from the nation's largest environmental film festival .

Think Like a Scientist: Boundaries
Humans construct boundaries – around our homes, our neighborhoods, and our nations – to bring order to a chaotic world. But we rarely consider how these boundaries affect other creatures!
The Accord
The reality of growing up a surfer in Iceland is different from anywhere else in the world. It’s a harsh place. There are no surf shops, guidebooks or webcams. But being so far removed from the hustle and bustle of the known surf world hardens Iceland’s surfers to confront the issue they all must face: the North Atlantic wind!
The Super Salmon
Proponents of a plan to construct a $5.2-billion hydroelectric mega-dam on Alaska’s Susitna River say it wouldn’t affect the watershed’s famous salmon runs because of its location – upstream of where fish usual swim. Tell that to the Super Salmon!
