Join Trail Creek Outfitters as they host two nights of inspired activism with The Wild & Scenic Film Festival. The nationally-acclaimed independent short films tour highlights outdoor adventure, environmental concerns and beautiful cinematography.

Since 2008, Trail Creek Outfitters has been bringing the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to Chester County, Pa. A two-night event since 2012, each evening features light refreshments of local food and drinks and a different selection of short films and equally benefits Stroud Water Research Center and The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County.

The theme this year is “A Change of Course.” This theme was chosen because issues surrounding water and our watercourses are timely and warrant special attention.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival sits apart from the hundreds of festivals around the world by leaving you feeling INSPIRED and MOTIVATED to go out and make a difference in your community and the world.

Thursday, April 21
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
at Stroud Water Research Center

Aquatic ecologist Emma Rosi-Marshall, Ph.D., from the Cary Institute will kick off our lecture series as she presents her work on the effects of novel contaminants, such as pharmaceuticals, on the health of stream ecosystems.

Dr. Rosi-Marshall conducts research on factors that control and influence ecosystem function in human-dominated ecosystems. Her research focuses on several aspects of human modifications to freshwater ecosystems such as land use change and restoration, widespread agriculture and associated crop byproducts, urbanization and the release of novel contaminants, and hydrologic modifications associated with dams.

The Science Seminar Series lectures are free and open to the public. Guests enjoy light refreshments before the lectures begin.

Stroud Water Research Center’s Inaugural Golf Outing

Monday, May 16
at Fieldstone Golf Club

Join us for our inaugural golf outing at this exclusive and Audubon-certified course in Greenville, Delaware.

Fieldstone is a scenic Par 71, 7000+ yard course featuring dramatic elevation changes, bent fairways, numerous sets of tees per hole, and old-world bunkering. The pristine nature of the property was preserved to provide members and their guests with an unparalleled golf experience. Hand-laid rock walls that wound through the property were preserved and incorporated into the design plan.

If you are interested in participating as a sponsor, golfer, or volunteer, please contact Jess Provinski at 610-268-2153, ext. 288 or jprovinski@stroudcenter.org to learn more.
