The Wyoming Wilderness Association will be hosting their 14th Annual Backcountry Film Festival in the Lovatt Room of the Pinedale Library on Saturday, February 9th. They will be showing a collection of winter wildlands films produced each year by the Winter Wildlands Alliance as a celebration of the human-powered outdoor experience. Free for kids and furloughed employees; $5 for adults. Beer, pizza and raffle prizes!
This year’s films feature adventure, environment and climate, youth outdoors, ski culture and more. There will be a special film about Adobe Town, a wild landscape in the southern Red Desert. Friends of the Bridger-Teton, a group dedicated to promoting stewardship of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, will also be there to share stewardship opportunities for public lands in the Pinedale area.
