Washington Water Trust

Working to restore our state's rivers and streams.


Wednesday, April 18th | SIFF Cinema Egyptian

Join Washington Water Trust for happy hour, lively conversation and an evening of eye-opening films! The Wild & Scenic Film Festival entertains, motivates and inspires people to explore our natural world and actively contribute to the protection of water, air, and wild places. Festival-goers can expect to see award winning films about nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, energy and climate change, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture, and Native American and indigenous cultures. This year’s theme, Groundswell, celebrates the power of collaboration, a key ingredient in Washington Water Trust's work. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Seattle directly supports our efforts to restore rivers and streams across Washington state and unites communities around our shared goal of healthy and productive waterways. 
Reclaim your sense of wonder, appreciation and adventure, and join us as we take you to some of the most remote and beautiful places on our planet!
