Do you have a spirit of adventure and a love for the outdoors?  The Hill Country Alliance brings selected films from the Wild and Scenic Film Festival to Texas State University in San Marcos on Thursday, October 27th at 7:30 p.m., and to Fritztown Cinema in Fredericksburg on Tuesday, November 1st at 6:30 p.m.  The seven films selected for this event will take us to the northern reaches of Alaska, the firefly-dotted forests of Japan, and to the parched delta of the Colorado River where it meets the Gulf of California.  We’ll learn about the plight of the monarch butterfly, how a unique approach to grazing is changing the way we understand traditional ranching, and about a dam removal project that bridged traditional divides.  According to the Hill County Alliance Executive Director Katherine Romans, “there is something for everyone to enjoy in this 2-hour program!”  There will be door prizes, gift certificates for the first 100 attendees, and refreshments.  Get your tickets for San Marcos here and for Fredericksburg here.  Student tickets are half price.
