Nature for All Stewards Friday Night Film Party

Our Nature for All Stewards group is taking steps to maintain connections with each other and our greater community with a “Quarantine Empower Hour” series of events. First up: a virtual Friday Night Film Party using Zoom!

With our #FridayNightFilmParty, watch “safer at home,” and stay socially connected with your friends at Nature for All Stewards! Every other Friday, we’ll choose a new set of short videos or a full-length film so we can learn and discuss together. Topics might range from outdoor advocacy, representation, Indigenous, Queer, POC, Women, Skills, Wildlife, Nature, Environmental education, Regional and International perspectives, to Huell Howser!
