Opening night screenings will begin at 7 p.m. featuring films portraying the importance of three iconic keystone species and citizen efforts to support them: "The Beaver Believers," "Canis Lupus Colorado," and "Drive Them Buffalo."
Tickets for the Wildlife Film Festival are available at Mendocino Book Co. or at the door. Series tickets are $45 and individual tickets are a suggested donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children. Films are appropriate for older children, but parental discretion is recommended.
