Bats fishing. Boys and butterflies. Girls on glaciers.

The Wild and Scenic Film Festival, North America’s largest environmental film festival, returns to Houston’s historic River Oaks Theater Jan. 28 and 29.

The touring festival of short films is always exciting and enlightening, providing Houstonians with eye-opening insights into new places, new adventures, and new research and ideas.

The festival features ten short films, with different films shown each night from 7 to 9 p.m.

Here’s how to buy tickets.

The popular event is sponsored for the sixth straight year by the Citizens Environmental Coalition, founded almost fifty years ago by a group of women active in environmental causes and quality of life issues. Among them was Terry Hershey, who helped save Buffalo Bayou from being channelized and lined with concrete like White Oak and Brays bayous.

The festival was started almost forty years ago by activists in California determined to protect the South Yuba River. It is now the focus of nearly 250 events around the country.
