Fawnskin, CA, November 9, 2012, 6am – On Thursday November 15, 2012, at 6:30pm, the Sierra Club Big Bear Group will present their annual Environmental Film Festival at the Discovery Center. They have two movies this year. “America’s Wildest Refuge” celebrates the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, its formation and expansion, and the fight to preserve it. You’ll see the pioneers who worked to preserve it, Native Americans who depend on its stability, and the animals who live there. After a short break, the group will watch “Born to be Wild” which tells the story of orphaned orangutans and elephants, and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them, saving endangered species one animal at a time. Bring your comfortable chairs and drinks, the popcorn will be provided. For more information go to the Sierra Club Big Bear Group website.
