Showcasing stories of sustainability, stewardship, and the environment.
The Schoharie River Center presents the first annual Mayfly Film Festival, a curated inspiring & urgent program of diverse films that are focused on the environment and our relationship with it. Featuring documentaries, narratives, animations, and experimental films, all with a focus on different environmental issues.
The Mayfly is an insect that is very susceptible to pollutants. When researching water quality, the presence of Mayflies can indicate that the water is clean or getting better. They have existed since before the dinosaurs, and we hope that our actions will lead to seeing them around well into the future.
We believe that this sensitive and ancient species is a perfect mascot for our delicate environment and all the issues surrounding it’s survival.
