Reel Green 2017: Inspiring People, Celebrating Nature

We invite you to join us March 16, 2017 for our annual Reel Green fundraising gala.

With host Terry MacLeod, the evening will feature a series of inspiring short films celebrating our natural environment and those working to protect it. We’ll award the annual Anne Lindsey Protecting Our Earth Awards, serve up some great food and drink and have some fun eco-themed prizes and auctions.
