Visions of the Wild Festival “connects nature, culture, and community.” Or, to put it another way, we believe the arts are a great way to bring people to nature. Each year we explore a different theme through field trips, art exhibits, concerts, speakers, and films. In 2023, we celebrate the environmental heroes, local and global, who are making a difference to conserve and restore our endangered planet. All of our events are free and open to all.
