Wild & Scenic - Environmental Film Festival @ PRM Giant Screen Theater
I realize that attending a film festival doesn't qualify as a hiking event. However, this environmental film festival celebrates and further educates all of us who value enjoying natures beauty and protecting it. It's best to purchase your tickets prior to the event at: The wonderful Peoria Riverfront Museum Giant Screen Theater is among the nations best venues for this traveling national environment film festival event. Prairie Rivers Network is excited to bring one of the largest environmental film festivals to Peoria. The "Wild & Scenic Film Festival" is a collection of films from the annual festival held in Nevada City, California, now in its 16th year! The festival focuses on environmental concerns and celebration of our planet and gives Prairie Rivers Network an opportunity to inspire the public to affect environmental change in Illinois. The festival also offers ways in which the public, supporters, and friends of the environment can get energized and empowered to work to protect clean water, wildlife habitat, and our rich natural landscapes.

What we're about

Welcome to the Peoria Backpackers Meetup Group. If you like the outdoors as much as we do, and love sitting around the camp fire telling tall stories, this group is for you. Come join us as we trek out into the Wilderness. We will learn the basics of backpacking, including gear, clothing, and meals. WE have a fun group of people that will keep you laughing and having a good time.

Before joining this group, keep in mind that we are mainly a Backpacking Group. Our Events are tailored to backpacking. You will be expected to have your own gear (although we do share) and be physically fit. Please read our FAQ page posted on our Message Board.
