These businesses Rock!
Please join us in thanking iFixit for its continued support of the NatureTrack Film Festival. iFixit is a wiki-based site that teaches people how to fix almost anything. Anyone can create a repair manual for a device, and anyone can also edit the existing set of manuals to improve them. Their site empowers individuals to share their technical knowledge with the rest of the world. iFixit also provides an online store where you can purchase specialty tools, parts, and repair kits for most gadgets. We are excited that iFixit will be donating their professional grade "jimmy" tool for prying open electronics safely for our pass holder swag bags. #ifixit

Together we can make a difference!
The NatureTrack Film Festival is so grateful for the continued support of our Partners in the community. These relationships not only help the film festival be a success, but also support the larger Cause of the NatureTrack Foundation - leading the way in bestowing the benefits of being outdoors on thousands of kids every year. Many studies support the health benefits for all of us when we get outside. A particularly excellent article on this topic was written by Kevin Loria for Business Insider. https://www.businessinsider.com/why-spending-more-time-outside-is-healthy-2017-7
But for some families, access to the outdoors is greatly limited. Sue, Holly and KC attended panel discussions at ORS that addressed the challenges facing the outdoor industry in attracting lower income and more diverse explorers, campers, climbers, hikers, bikers and surfers, etc. This is where the mission of NatureTrack has significant impact in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties as its K-12 student, parent and teacher demographic is 70% Hispanic, 24.6% Caucasian, 4% Asian, 1% African American, <1% Islander, < 1% Indian/Alaskan Native, <1% 2 or more races. Also, 60% of students served are from low to moderate income families who qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program.
