Join us for a FREE screening of Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman, Conservation Heroes of the American Heartland on Monday, November 27th, 2017 at 6:15 pm at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, DC! Following the film, we will have a short Q&A with author Miriam Horn.

The film is a tribute to people like Justin Knopf, a fifth-generation Kansas farmer revolutionizing industrial scale agriculture to rebuild the fertility, biodiversity and resilience of his soil, and Dusty Crary, a fourth-generation Montana rancher who forged alliances between cattlemen, federal agencies, hunters and environmental groups to protect the Rocky Mountain Front.

Based on a book by best-selling author Miriam Horn of Environmental Defense Fund, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman was directed by Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Susan Froemke and Emmy winner John Hoffman, and narrated by award-winning journalist Tom Brokaw.
