I worked with Kyler in real estate for years. Currently he is the Board President of the Clark Fork – Pend Oreille Conservancy.
Kyler was on my North Idaho Business show to talk about the upcoming Wild & Scenic Film festival on October 7th & 8th at the Panida Theater.
Here is how the interview went:
Tell me a little about the Clark Fork – Pend Oreille Conservancy:
The Clark Fork-Pend Oreille Conservancy (CFPOC) is a land trust that works with the landowners and organizations in the Clark Fork River and Lake Pend Oreille watersheds to protect, maintain, and enhance natural resources and recreational values that contribute to our quality of life.
So what exactly is a Land Trust? What do you do?
A land trust is a nonprofit organization that works with landowners to protect land and water resources. We are a tax-exempt charity that is composed of local citizens concerned about natural resources and conservation. Land trusts and private landowners work together as partners to protect land with conservation easements and other voluntary conservation methods. We save the land you love!
So you are here to talk about the Wild & Scenic Film Festival that the CFPOC is hosting – Tell me more about that…
This is the 9th Annual Wild & Scenic® Film Festival with another incredible selection of films to change your world. This is our second year hosting this event. Which is made possible by many local and regional businesses and individual donations, working in partnership with National Sponsors like, Patagonia, Cliff Bar, Sierra Nevada Brewing and Kleen Kanteen. Each year, the Wild & Scenic® Film Festival draws top filmmakers, celebrities, leading activists, social innovators and well-known world adventurers. It is like combining the Banff Film Festival and Radical Reels and adding an environmental twist to it! The CFPOC is very fortunate to be involved in the Wild & Scenic Film Festival…
Considered the largest film festival of its kind, the films combine stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, inspire and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation.…
This year’s films instill a deep appreciation and a sense of wonder for the natural world that surrounds and supports us. There are some fantastic Ski films, some white water films, mountaineering and some outright funny films that will keep you wondering what the next film will be.
That Sounds Great! When is the Festival?
