Environmental Film Series - NSOLF if pleased to announce the first showing in our series: Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman
Join us on February 25th at 3pm at the Ruth Keeler Memorial Library as we kick off our Environmental Film Series. We will have a special Q&A with Eric Pooley, Senior Vice President of Environmental Defense Fund and advisor on the film.
Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman tells the inspiring story of heartland conservation heroes who are feeding the world while stewarding the land and water. This documentary will change your mind about what it means to be an environmentalist. The film, which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and debuted on the Discovery Channel in August 2017, follows people like Dusty Crary, a fourth-generation Montana rancher who forged alliances between cattlemen, federal agencies, hunters and environmental groups to protect millions of acres of Rocky Mountain wilderness. Justin Knopf, a fifth-generation Kansas farmer is revolutionizing industrial scale agriculture to rebuild soil fertility. And Louisiana fisherman Wayne Werner finds a way to reverse the threat of overfishing of the mighty red snapper, the signature fish in Werner's Gulf of Mexico waters.
Based on a book by best-selling author Miriam Horn of Environmental Defense Fund, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman is narrated by award-winning journalist Tom Brokaw. At a time of great division in America, the film shines a light on bipartisan solutions to challenges facing our land, wildlife, croplands and fisheries—including climate change.
Popcorn and soda will be available.
