Film: Tallgrass Prairie

July 19, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

free

The tallgrass prairie is America’s lost landscape. Prior to Euro-American settlement in the 1820s, one of the major landscape features of North America was 240 million acres of tallgrass prairie. But between 1830 and 1900 — in the span of a single lifetime — the prairie was steadily transformed to farmland.

The extraordinary cinematography of prairie remnants, original score and archival images are all delicately interwoven to create a powerful and moving viewing experience about the natural and cultural history of America.

Amongst those interviewed are Nina Leopold Bailey and Carol Leopold — two of Aldo Leopold’s children.
