Environmental film festival, gala set for Saturday

By Sally High

Special to The PREVIEW

Since 2009, a dedicated grassroots group of Pagosa Springs citizens has planned a geothermal education park in downtown Pagosa Springs. In 2012, the group achieved independent nonprofit status. In 2015, partnered with the Town of Pagosa Springs, the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership (GGP) acquired sufficient cash and in-kind contributions to begin to build the park.

This Saturday, July 18, the GGP is hosting the third Colorado Environmental Film Festival Caravan at the Liberty Theatre and the Gala Celebration on the Farrago’s patio. The Gala Celebration is an opportunity for the public to make tax-deductible contributions to the nonprofit park and gain understanding of the funding and construction process.

The first of six films, three features and three shorts will begin at 9 a.m. The final film of the day will begin at 3:30 p.m. Schedules are posted at Pagosa Springs businesses and can be viewed at www.pagosagreen.org or www.facebook.com/geothermalgreenhousepartnership.
