JACKSON HOLE WILD ON TOUR – CONSERVATION FILM SERIES 1/12, 2/21, 3/14, 4/20, 5/18 @ 7:00PM
Radnor Memorial Library, along with its partners Radnor Conservancy, Radnor Bird Town, and Radnor Township’s EAC, invite you to attend our 1st winter and spring conservation film series that features 5 award-winning, outstanding films that will educate and inspire us to become engaged in conservation. We have purchased rights to screen films that were entered at the 2015 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival. All of the filmmakers, who are passionate about their craft and the world we live in, love sharing their films with smaller audiences in the hope that it invites discussion after the screening. The artists, who themselves are involved in conservation, hope to empower us in our local communities to get involved.
