The Cleveland Museum of Natural History
1 Wade Oval Drive
The Wild and Scenic
Environmental Film Festival on Tour
The Cleveland Museum of Natural History presents an Enviro Fair starting at 6:00 p.m. then The Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival on Tour at 7:00 p.m.
It is said that if you do not think that one person can make a difference, then you have never spent a night in a room with a hungry mosquito. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History will be presenting a series of short films that show how individuals can make a difference to our environment by doing even the simplest things. These films use heart and humor to get their message across.
The series is also a great way of being introduced to a number of issues that people are working on across the globe. This is a series of movies appropriate for all ages and a great way to introduce your children to the issues that they will also someday be facing.
Tickets: $10 for members, $15 for nonmembers, $5 for students
6:00 p.m.: Enviro-Fair
Light refreshments will be served and a $3.00 beer and wine cash bar will be in operation as you visit with various members of local environmental groups. Be sure to sign up for the raffle to win great prizes.
