Join us for another fabulous weekend at the largest film festival of its kind. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival sits apart from the hundreds of festivals around the world by leaving you feeling INSPIRED and MOTIVATED to go out and make a difference in your community and the world.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival puts our local work – and yours too – into the broader environmental and social context, and serves to remind us that we’re participants in a global movement for a more wild and scenic world.

Volunteers Needed

Volunteer at a C4 Zero Waste Event

Leadville Race Series volunteers are the key to making these events environmentally sustainable.  Since 2012 at Leadville Race Series Events, we have kept more than 80% of all trash out of the landfill through recycling, composting and outreach efforts.  That’s over 30,000 pounds of waste diverted every year, 70,000 pounds of carbon reduced from our earth’s atmosphere and many natural resources saved!  Help educate participants on how to recycle and compost.  You will be placed at an aid station or at the start/finish to cheer racers on while providing a valuable service.

Thank you Leadville, for a great party for the planet.

Great job to our 2016 Green Champions, including the Lake County School District transportation and Custodial Staff for their dedication to composting initiatives, and to Independence Realty and Property Management for their support of local energy efficiency programs. Over 100 people attended the Party for the Planet last Friday night to celebrate Earth Day and our Green Champion Winners. Thanks to Groovespeak for the music, and to HarperRose Studios for hosting. Also thanks to local businesses that donated revenue on Earth Day, including Melanzana, Cycles of Life, Community Threads, Cookies with Altitude, Leadville Outdoors, High Mountain Pies, City on a Hill, and HarperRose Studios! What a great community show of support for the environment!
