The Wild & Scenic Film Festival


We are bringing the Wild and Scenic Film Festival to Central Texas this fall! This event will be a drive-in film series at one of our tallgrass prairie preserves, Billig Ranch. Attendees can watch the films from the comfort of their cars or lawn chairs. Each short film highlights a unique nature conservation story. Festival goers are invited to camp on the preserve over night following the screening.

This event reaches a wide audience, including families and outdoor and conservation-minded people, plus our supporters in our five-county service area: Travis, Caldwell, Lee, Fayette, and Bastrop Counties. Last year our event sold out, so get your tickets early!
