February 5, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The midwest’s premier environmental film festival, creating opportunities for understanding climate change, sustainability and the power of human involvement. They showcase top-issue, thought-provoking environmental films and lead audiences in interactive post-film discussions focused on solutions.

We’ll be showing the documentary Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman tells the inspiring story of heartland conservation heroes who are feeding the world while stewarding the land and water. 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.

The event is free, but you need a ticket to reserve your spot. Hurry! Last year the event sold out.

There will also be a Sustainability Resource Fair beforehand.
