PWV, in collaboration with Colorado State University’s Warner College of Natural Resources, is hosting a showing of “Forever Wild” on Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. in the Behavioral Sciences A101. The documentary is narrated by Robert Redford and features prose by Terry Tempest Williams. This one-hour long film celebrates America’s wilderness and the heroes who have fought to keep these natural masterpieces as they are.
The Poudre Wilderness Volunteers have been planning activities for both members of their organization and the public. They have a Get into Wilderness Initiative, where they have organized several hikes in the Rawah Wilderness Area, one of the first designated by President Lyndon B. Johnson’s important act. They have also helped make the commemorative poster featuring photographer John Fielder’s work on Colorado’s beautiful landscapes.
The Wilderness Art Exhibition begins tonight. This exhibit includes 22 works by 15 local artist. It is at the Bas Bleu Theater Gallery at 401 Pine St. in Fort Collins. It runs through Oct. 31 and the gallery is open Tuesday through Friday 12:30-5:30 p.m. and Saturdays 1-4 p.m.
