Asheville, NC --- Grassroots Outdoor Alliance is proud to announce their ongoing partnership with The Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival and Tour. In 2008-2009, thirteen Grassroots Retailers will help sponsor movies from the Festival locally, to raise funds for local environmental groups.

The festival is held in Nevada City and is a kick-off for the nationwide tour. The main Festival/Tour sponsor is Patagonia. It's a festival for activists by activists. The tour/festival started in 2004 with two venues and will reach close to seventy venues in 2008. The event is organized and hosted by the South Yuba River Citizens League. For 25 years this grassroots environmental organization has been bringing the community together around the protection of the Yuba Watershed.

Grassroots Outdoor Alliance partnered with Wild &Scenic to bring the tour to independent retailers in over 15 locations in 2007-2008. To date Grassroots Retailers have coordinated $11,500 in funds donated to Local Environmental Groups hosting the Tour.
