Effigy Mounds Winter Film Festival March schedule

Effigy Mounds National Monument continues to celebrate the 53rd Annual Winter Film Festival with free movies through the month of March. Show times for the film are 10 and 11 a.m., 12 noon, and 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. There will also be a 1 p.m. showing Mondays.
 Admission to the festival is free. The film schedule for the month of March is as follows:
March 5, 6, 7: Spectacular Showdowns - Animals in Conflict. Humans often assume that wild creatures consistently duel to the death. Nothing could be farther from the truth! In fact, all animals go to great lengths to avoid fighting. The reason for this behavior is not kindness, but the instinct to live.  They somehow instinctively know that even the winner can suffer serious injury. The rarity of major confrontations makes such battles all the more compelling. Art by Waukon Middle and High School students under the direction of teacher Julie Alden.
March 12, 13, 14: Extreme Alaska - Denali National Park. Trek to the high-altitude summit of Denali Park’s Mount McKinley and face the wild extremes of life in this off-road, awe-inspiring journey to Extreme Alaska and Denali National Park. Art by Prairie Catholic School students under the direction of teacher Colleen Welter.
March 19, 20, 21: National Parks Collection. Take a quick preview of  Secret Yellowstone, Secret Yosemite, Denali, Everglades, Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Hawaii, Canyonlands and Glacier National Park.
