A Barron’s Top Advisor, Gary Fournier manages over $1 billion in client assets as a managing director with JP Morgan in Los Angeles. Alongside his professional pursuits, Gary Fournier supports the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy (PVPLC), a nonprofit organization that purchases, restores, and protects undeveloped land to provide open spaces for public education and recreation.
In addition to conducting several research and education programs, the PVPLC oversees a number of special events throughout the year. The organization recently hosted a Wild & Scenic Film Festival screening at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, California.
Founded by the South Yuba River Citizens League in 1983, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival brings attention to land conservation issues by showing engaging nature films. Today, the festival is the largest of its kind in the United States, and organizations like the PVPLC hold Wild & Scenic On Tour showings at venues throughout the United States.
Attendees at the PVPLC’s second annual On Tour festival showing, which took place Sunday, January 24, 2016, had the opportunity to view 12 short movies over the course of two hours. The films covered a variety of subjects and showcased natural wonders in Yosemite National Park, Fiji, Namibia, and several U.S. states.
