ROOM: RSCC, C4
The National Fish Habitat Partnership and Fish Habitat Section have teamed up to host a film festival for the Reno meeting – Reno-vating Habitat for Fish and Wildlife: A Film Festival Highlighting Collaborative Habitat Conservation and Its Benefits. This festival will take place each day of the conference and include over 80 films shown during 14 showing sessions. Films will showcase examples where resource practitioners and others come together to protect, restore and enhance freshwater, coastal and terrestrial habitats that support the needs of fish and wildlife. These films share how improving habitat brings other benefits like improved water quality and socio-economic returns to communities. Film categories include habitat conservation projects, on-the-ground restoration examples, and include other films that capture the dynamic landscapes and unique habitats that are home to our fish and wildlife. This festival offers a unique opportunity for meeting attendees to collaborate and learn about successful habitat conservation stories from across the country. Each showing session will include some time at the beginning for available filmers and colleagues to share additional information about their films as well as engage in question and answer dialog towards the end of each showing session. For Information on the times for specific films, please visit the detailed schedule in front of the room or you can get a festival pamphlet at the registration desk. Click here for more information.
