Everything from insects to whales

environmental science fly GIFThe 2018 RI Nature Video Festival will be held on Saturday February 10 at 2 PM at Save The Bay, 100 Save The Bay Boulevard in Providence. 

All of the videos were made by Rhode Islanders and were filmed in Rhode Island. 

18 different video makers have videos in the show with topics ranging from insects to whales, and almost everything in between. 

Festival Organizer Greg Gerritt noted “I started making videos of frogs and tadpoles several years ago and was curious to see who else was making nature videos in Rhode Island, and through the Environment Council was able to pull together a festival as a way of getting the video makers another venue for their work, and for the opportunity for the video makers to share how they do their work.” 

In addition to a showing of 25 Rhode Island nature videos the event will include an opportunity to speak with and question the video makers.

The event is free and open to the public. 

But walk ins will be welcome. 

The RI Nature Video Festival is brought to you the Environment Council of Rhode Island, Save The Bay, the Audubon Society of Rhode Island, State Representative Lauren Carson, Friends of the Moshassuck, the Rhode Island Natural History Survey, the Roger Williams Park Zoo, and The Nature Conservancy
