The 2019 Wild Rivers Film Tour kicks off this week at the Art House Cinema in Billings on Tuesday April 2nd and at Casey's in Whitefish on Wednesday April 3rd.
This year's tour includes nine magnificent films focused on river adventure and conservation. Selections include: Testimony to Congress: In Defense of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Hallowed Waters - Legacy and Lifeblood of the Big Blackfoot, The Last Green Thread, Hank Patterson’s Wild and Scenic Rivers Act: Fact vs. Fictions, Glen Canyon Rediscovered, Grand Canyon Water, Shred for the South Fork, and Run Wild Run Free.
The Wild Rivers Film Tour promotes the next age of river conservation in Montana and advocates for the introduction of the Montana Headwaters Security Act. The Montana Headwaters Security Act proposes to use Wild & Scenic River designations to keep iconic rivers on public lands in Montana clean and free-flowing. The effort is supported by Montanans for Healthy Rivers – a coalition of businesses, private land owners, sportsmen and conservation groups.
