In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day this April, Local County Farm Bureaus will partner with the Illinois Valley Community College Ag Club to host a free showing of Discovery’s Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman. The public will be invited to attend the event at the Dr. Mary Margaret Weeg Cultural entre at the IVCC Oglesby campus on Monday, March 23rd at 6:00 p.m. The documentary will be followed by a brief panel, with experts diving into a discussion about conservation efforts and environmental focus on local agricultural lands.
Earth Day is an annual celebration of the environment and an opportunity to identify areas in which existing conservation efforts can be enhanced to improve our natural resources, including land, air, and water. Come view Discovery’s Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman as it shines a light on preserving landscapes and offers inspiring solutions to the challenges confronting America’s wild land and wildlife, fisheries and croplands.
