Offsetting Our Carbon Footprint

The Festival is committed to ACTION to make significant changes in the way we live every day, and you can do this, too. This year, the Festival has purchased 1,000 trees to help restore our national forests that have been ravaged by fire.

This is but one small step that each of us can take to help restore that which is essential to life.
