Post-Film: Champagne Toast, Cookie & Story Swap and Filmmaker Q&A

Join us for the premiere of “Far Afield: A Conservation Love Story" featuring local icon Bert Raynes. This JenTen Productions’ film follows Bert as he travels from the “mean streets” of New Jersey to the green streets of Jackson Hole. Along the way, Bert discovers the two great loves of his life: nature and Meg, his wife and muse. Inspired by the natural beauty of the Tetons, Meg and Bert foster a community of wildlife lovers, creating a force for nature.

"A skilled naturalist, defender of nature, and believer in the power of conservation and democracy, Bert Raynes gently urges us, young and old, to believe we can make a difference." — Todd Wilkinson, Environmental Journalist and Author

The film, created for Charture Institute and 1% for the Tetons, was made possible by donations from over 230 individuals, families, organizations and businesses. Special thanks to our Executive Producers aka “Ravens”: Collister Family Donor Advised Fund of the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, Friends of Bert, Ralph and Louise Haberfeld, Zach Hall and Julie Giacobassi, Bruce Hayse, Jackson Hole News&Guide, National Museum of Wildlife Art, The Nature Conservancy of Wyoming, Peter and Adrienne Ward.
