About the film
Our public lands and waters are under threat. As an extinction crisis looms and climate change continues to be one of the greatest threats our planet has ever faced, America’s 640 million acres of public lands support biodiversity and carbon sequestration. It’s essential that we fight for their protection by preventing the slashing of the Bears Ears National Monument in Utah, fighting the potential permanent destruction of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota, and stopping the de facto sale of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—one of the last wild places in America
Panelists for Wednesday night’s Zoom discussion include:
Kathryn Gardner, Communication and Development Studies
Hannah Wintucky, Communication and Development Studies
Geoff Buckley, Geography
Jon Viti, Environmental Studies
Nathan Johnson, Ohio Environmental Council Public Lands Attorney
