Wanna see some great outdoor flicks?

On Thursday, Feb. 12, from 6 to 9 p.m., the Stroud Water Research Center is planning a “Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival.” It will be held at the Unionville Elementary School on W. Doe Run Road in Kennett Square, Chester County.

The ten films include:

* “Homegrown Revolution” — a 12-minute piece about a family downtown Pasadena that, among other things, grows three tons of organic foods on one-tenth of an acre.
* “Burning the Future: Coal in America — a 30-minute look at mountaintop mining in West Virginia.
* “Sand Dancer” — 10 minutes about a New Zealander who creates art in the sand.
* “Weather We Change” — 30 minutes, about a group of athletes in search of a greener ski-bum lifestyle.

The event is presented nationally by Patagonia, Inc. and sponsored locally by the outdoor gear purveyor, Trail Creek Outfitters. Tickets are $15 and proceeds benefit the Stroud Water Research Center. Read more about it here.
