GeoExplorer Club to Host a Free Virtual Screening of "The Ground Between Us"

Since 2017, public lands throughout America have faced unprecedented threats. Bears Ears National Monument was shrunk by 85%, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge was opened to oil exploration and the Elliott State Forest in Oregon was nearly privatized. 

The GeoExplorers club is hosting a free, virtual screening of "The Ground Between Us" at 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30. The documentary follows the key issues of the public lands debate through the eyes of three families. In Alaska, an indigenous tribe reclaims their culture; in Oregon, meet a family with a long history of living and working in the forests as loggers; and in Utah, a family of ranchers hailing from the old west is bringing up a new generation to appreciate the lands that are such an integral part of their lives.
