Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.


Wild & Scenic Film Festival

When: Sat., Nov. 6, 5 p.m. 2021

Join Friends of the Lost Coast for a virtual screening of the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, Saturday, November 6th at 5:00 p.m. The festival’s theme this year is ‘Resilient by Nature’ and this special online showing will feature 11 independent short films, curated to run for just under 2 hours. The range of films runs the gamut from scientists wading through alligator infested waters to discover which elusive creature pollinates the incredible Ghost Orchid; to following the life of Myrtle Simpson, a trailblazing explorer and mother who lived in a time when a “woman’s place was in the kitchen”; to celebrating diversity and creating accessibility to the great outdoors for people of all races. Holding the festival on-line makes it accessible for people to watch in the comfort of their home, from anywhere in the world. Tickets can be purchased at lostcoast.org, or you can attend a live screening at Gyppo Ale Mill in Shelter Cove. The Wild and Scenic Film Festival tours at more than 180 events each year, partnering with groups like Friends of the Lost Coast who are working to protect and restore important places in their communities. Because love of nature is a strong force for conservation, Friends of the Lost Coast works to connect people and nature. Their programs provide students, volunteers, visitors, and the local community opportunities to understand, engage with and preserve the wild lands on the Lost Coast of Northern California. The proceeds from the Wild and Scenic Film Festival benefit Friends of the Lost Coast’s environmental education programs which include In-School Programs, Summer Adventure Camps for kids, Native Plant Garden & Lost Coast Education Center, Hikes and Lectures, and the Shelter Cove Invasive Plant Program.
