The University of Wyoming Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources’ second annual Wild and Working Lands Film Festival will screen Thursday, April 6, in Laramie, featuring nine short films exploring relationships between people and the landscapes where residents live, work and play.
The festival -- free and open to the public -- will be held at 7 p.m. at the Gryphon Theatre, located at 710 E. Garfield St. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
An additional free public screening will take place at the Cody Theatre in Cody -- hosted by the East Yellowstone Collaborative and friends -- at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 29.
With an emphasis on stories set in the wild and rural areas of the Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains and high desert sagebrush steppe, the festival inspires audiences to better understand the current world and work toward a future where people and natural environments prosper together.
“We hope this festival can elevate some of the innovative conservation work that is going on around the West that helps both humans and wild places,” says Emilene Ostlind, the festival’s director. “These films also celebrate the ways people are connected to the land.”
Films cover such topics as wildlife-friendly fencing, raptor electrocutions, conservation on ranches, black-footed ferret recovery and adventurous spirits.
At the Laramie screening, popcorn will be provided, with other snacks and beverages available for purchase.
