Event: On Friday, February 22, at 6 p.m., the Goose Creek Association and the Land Trust of Virginia bring you: Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman, the acclaimed film based on the book by Miriam Horn of the Environmental Defense Fund. Three rugged individualists explore how to preserve their way of life by stewarding the land and water on which we all depend. These conservation heroes learn to use the tools and methods created by law, academics, environmental groups, and their fellow outdoorsman to forge alliances and continue to feed the world while enhancing the environment.
Rancher Dusty Crary builds a conservation easement alliance to protect the Rocky Mountain Front that his ranch depends on; farmer Justin Knopf rebuilds the fertility, biodiversity and resilience of his soil in the Kansas heartland, and fisherman Wayne Werner lobbies to establish reasonable fishing quotas that restock the Gulf.
Narrated by award-winning journalist Tom Brokaw, this film premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and debuted on the Discovery Channel in August 2017.
Admission is FREE and refreshments will be served.
