Need some environmental beauty?

Days are getting bleak around campus and mounds of snow and ice are piled up at every turn, so indulge your senses in a change of scenery and appreciate another side of Mother Nature at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival.

The event will be held at the Chester County Historical Society (225 North High Street in West Chester) on Feb. 24.

Fifteen short films will be featured at the festival, their content ranging from an inside look at the mind of a professional flat ground BMX cyclist to a plastic bag’s journey from the grocery store to the ocean. The purpose of each film is to capture the beauty of the environment as well as remind the audience that they play a tremendous role in maintaining the health of the Earth.

“When we realize that the change we need in this world begins with us, we can start making a difference,” Tour manager Suzie Stutphin said.

Tickets are on sale now for $20 and can be purchased online, but they will also be available at the doors of the event for $25. The film showings begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m. with intermissions in between the films. Concessions will be available for sale. So grab a friend, drop the books and succumb to the call of the wild!
