Source to Sea: Environmental Film Festival
A totemic and magical creature is calling out to you from a place of peril. The Sierra Nevada's last wild run of salmon is in danger of extinction; their 2000-mile journey of sex, death and rebirth flows through the San Francisco Bay and most of us never know it.

The salmon's survival and ability to thrive is directly connected to our lives here in the Bay.  Join us for the SOURCE TO SEA festival and connect to the life-web of your greater watershed.  A benefit for the Save Yuba Salmon campaign, SOURCE TO SEA will feature films from the Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival, (the largest environmental film festival in the United States) as well as performance, live music, food, drinks, and discussion of the California salmon crisis.  

Swim upriver for a story of place - and reconnect to YOUR headwaters!
