2024 Event Info Coming Soon

Red Bluff State Theatre marque lit up at night, with Wild and Scenic Film Festival label displayed brightly

Be prepared to be wowed! Considered one of the nation’s premier nature education and adventure film festivals, the Wild & Scenic films combine stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography, and first rate storytelling that make for an evening of inspiration and fun! Festival goers can expect to see award winning films about nature, adventure, conservation, water, our changing world, wildlife, and agriculture. The films instill a deep appreciation and a sense of wonder for the natural world that surrounds and supports us all. 

The Tehama Conservation Fund values the film festival as an avenue to better community understanding of the connection we share with our planet and our role as stewards to keep it healthy now and for the next generations. 

Burrows Conservationist of the Year

Supporting wildlife and our way-of-life is something that the late, great Bill Burrows regularly talked about. As a local rancher, outdoorsman, instructor in the Shasta College Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources for 34 years, and longtime Resource Conservation District of Tehama County associate director, Bill was passionate about integrated farming and ranching practices. He believed that all land management decisions should be dedicated to the social, financial, and environmental enhancement of our community. He understood that private and public parties should work together for mutual benefit. We think that Bill would be delighted to know that a local steward would receive an award in his honor, annually.
