USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) presents a documentary on soil conservation pioneer Hugh Hammond Bennett, the history of the agency and the birth of the private lands conservation movement in the U.S.
The new documentary Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman tells the inspiring story of heartland heroes who are feeding the world while stewarding the land and water. A Montana rancher, two Kansas farmers, and a Louisiana fisherman offer inspiring solutions to the challenges confronting America’s land and sea in Discovery’s Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman.
Following the film, there will be a moderated panel discussion with Justin Knopf, Keith Thompson and local conservationists who will discuss the progression of conservation from the 1930's to today. The panel will provide insight on how farmers can restore soils, add biological diversity to their cropping systems and continue to be both profitable and good stewards of the land.
This event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by Johnston Seed Company, USDA-NRCS, No-till on the Plains and the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts.
