Today in the newspaper of record for the biggest city in the Suwannee River Basin, Amanda M. Usher, Valdosta Daily Times, May 29, 2018, Watershed Coalition to hold film festival
VALDOSTA — The WWALS Watershed Coalition will host the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, 7 p.m. Thursday, May 31, at the Mathis City Auditorium.
The festival will feature 13 films from national filmmakers, one of which will focus on coral reef restoration and another on the Chattooga River.
Gretchen Quarterman, executive director, said one of the purposes of the festival is to observe the 50th anniversary of rivers reaching the designation status by Congress in 1968.
“We’re trying to raise awareness of the rivers in the Suwannee Basin, which is our area, so that people will appreciate them more,” Quarterman said….
There will be a silent auction with items such as donations from [Valdosta] Wake Compound and Wild Adventures Theme Park. Big Nick’s will provide refreshments for attendees to purchase.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
