Banff Film Festival Returns as Does Spring

Spring is a time of rebirth and regeneration and no one celebrates that better than the Jamestown Audubon Society. They have several events planned that will get you outside and appreciating this exciting time of the year. One event that stands out is the Vernal Pools Exploration taking place this Saturday, April 12. Vernal Pools are temporary bodies of water that are created from the spring thaw. During their short existence they provide habitats for salamanders and other small wildlife. Go to the Audubon’s Web site to learn about their events and register.


Another nature-related event is the Banff Film Festival Tour, which will make a stop in Jamestown on Wednesday, April 9, at the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts. This is an annual fundraiser for the Roger Tory Peterson Institute and is always a popular event. The festival features several short films that highlight adventure and mountain sports. The breathtaking shots and daring feats captured by the cinematographers result in a series of powerful films. 

This Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, The Spire Theater’s Studio Metro will host “Twelve Angry Men,” produced locally by Theatre for a Cause. This production will provide a unique in-the-round experience for attendees. Tickets are $12 and all proceeds benefit the James Prendergast Library. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. each night.
