Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour 2021

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour is returning to the Bayou City on January 29, 2021. Hosted for the seventh straight year by the Citizens’ Environmental Coalition, this ever-popular film fest will be a virtual experience.

The January festival is just one of many offerings as part of the Houston Green Film Series. The lineup in January features national and international films that awe and inspire action to protect and preserve our environment. The festival also provides a broader audience for us to share three winners of the Wild About Houston Film Festival that highlight local environmental treasures and initiatives.

The auction has some GREAT items in 2021, including a pontoon boat ride through Armand Bayou Nature Center, a private cistern tour from Buffalo Bayou Partnership, custom art made by an ambassador animal at the Delores Fenwick Nature Center in Pearland and a private tour of Deer Park Prairie with Native Prairies Association of Texas. Bidding is open on this Google Form through February 1 at noon.

Justice and Transformation: Houston Women on Climate Action

From fires to floods, the consequences of climate change are increasingly evident. Underserved communities often face the most severe impacts.

Inspired by Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Dr. Katharine Wilkinson’s All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis, this virtual panel discussion will bring together four Houston women whose work addresses climate justice: Dr. Denae King (TSU), Dr. Cymene Howe (Rice), Amy Catherine Dinn (Lone Star Legal Aid), and Iris Gonzalez (Coalition for Environment, Equity & Resilience (CEER).

Join us on October 28, 2020, at 6 p.m. for a discussion about gender, climate change, and environmental justice.

Co-sponsored by Rice’s Fondren Library Green Team, Rice’s Center for Environmental Studies, and Houston’s Citizens’ Environmental Coalition (CEC). Fondren Library is hosting this event as part of its participation in the ALA’s Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change grant.
