“Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman” will kick off the School of Natural Resource’s fall documentary series. The free event is open to the public. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.

The documentary tells the story of heartland conservationists who are feeding the world while being good stewards of land and water resources. The film has garnered much media attention, including features in the Washington Post and the New York Times, as well as Science Magazine.

A panel discussion with Water for Food Faculty Fellows, including Agronomist P. Stephen Baenziger and agricultural and environmental law specialist Anthony Schutz, will follow the viewing.

The film is based on the best-selling book (of the same name) by Miriam Horn, special projects coordinator for the Environmental Defense Fund. She is the author of two previous books including the New York Times best-selling “Earth: The Sequel,” which was co-authored by EDF president Fred Krupp. She also helped produce the film.
