On Tour Resources 2024: National Partners

We are extremely proud to be supported by the following National Sponsors: American Rivers, Earthjustice, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Nia Impact Capital and HHMI Tangled Bank Studios. (California hosts, please include Hipcamp). These like-minded companies have joined Wild & Scenic in a shared campaign to support the use of film and art as a means to inspire activism and increase the groundswell of the environmental movement. Together, they support Tour Hosts across the country and beyond – our National Partners make the tour possible! Without their support, we would not be able to share these inspiring films with our hosts in 165+ communities worldwide. In return, we ask you for your reciprocated support of their companies and current environmental campaigns.

  1. On-stage Recognition: Please recognize each of our National Partners by name on-stage (For example: “Thank you to our National partners… for supporting  the use of film to inspire activism”).
  2. Your National Partner Kit: Each event will be shipped a National Partner Kit with goodies generously provided to you from our partners. Use these items in a raffle drawing, as door prizes, or put them all together for a silent auction basket – whatever makes the most sense for your event! Share these prizes with your audience and thank our awesome National Partners.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

About SNBC: Inspired by the Sierra Nevada mountains, our beers are designed to be as bold, wild, and unwavering as those storied granite peaks. Founded in 1980, Sierra Nevada is a pioneer of the craft beer industry and also a leader in sustainability. While our dedication to quality and innovation has pushed the boundaries of craft beer, our commitment to environmental stewardship is also evident from grain to glass.

With craft beer’s largest solar array and investments in microturbine technology, we’ve been a long-time advocate for renewable energy and generate about 90% of our electricity onsite at our Chico, CA brewery. Our Mills River, NC brewery was proud to be the first production brewery to earn Platinum LEED certification and both of our breweries are also certified Platinum TRUE zero waste with 99.5% of our solid waste diverted from the landfill.

Our closed loop philosophy emphasizes waste reduction and reuse throughout our operations including CO2 recovery, rainwater collection, biodiesel production, and onsite composting.

If you’re planning to serve beer at your Wild & Scenic event, please consider Sierra Nevada as your first choice! Sierra Nevada was founded with the principles of environmental stewardship, zero waste, and efficiency at heart. We’ve partnered with Wild & Scenic for more than 10 years to help ensure that environmental awareness and advocacy reaches as many communities across the nation as possible. To learn more about our commitment to sustainability, visit www.SierraNevada.com.

Note: when your emcee thanks SNBC, please refer to ‘Sierra Nevada Brewing Company’ and not just ‘Sierra Nevada’.
