Wild Connections is proud to be a sponsor of Rocky Mountain Wild’s 2020 Wild & Scenic Film Festival, coming up on January 23, 2020 at the Mayan Theatre in Denver.
The evening will include award-winning environmental and outdoor adventure films from around the world that have been selected not only for their great visual stories, but also to inspire and motivate us to continue the cause to keep the Rocky Mountains wild.
A portion of the proceeds of the event will benefit Rocky Mountain Wild. Also, don't miss the opening reception where you can take part in direct actions from local nonprofits in our Citizens Action Hub prior to the films!
Rosy-Finches flock to the feeders on the Ballard's deck and into the wire trap. Greg Levandoski and Joel Such examine each bird and record previous band number and physical data. Volunteers Kathy McClintock, Laurel George and Tiffany Trunnel get a first hand education about the birds before they are released. They will fly off to the near by pine trees and then return again and again until they are well-fulled for the cold temperatures.
The hospitality team of John and Carol Stansfield and Bob Ballard kept everyone happy with a warm cabin and plentiful food and hot drinks. This Rosy-Finch event kicked off a series of special events to celebrate Wild Connections 25th Anniversary.
Greg Levandoski is with Regalis Environmental LLC working in partnership with Bird Conservancy of the Rockies and UC/Santa Cruz. Joel Such assisted.
