This American Land features Lake County’s bold initiative to address climate change

Posted by Renee Magyar on January 22, 2013

Lake County, OR is leading rural America to a renewable energy future.


This summer we helped develop a climate change and conservation investment campaign that resulted in this 10 minute video for a PBS series called This American Land. In partnership with Lake County Resources Initiative, we helped frame the story of the "natural resources revival" happening in Lake County, Oregon, that includes renewable energy development, sustainable forest management, and climate change adaptation. This story is a companion piece to our publication "The Cowboy, The Outlaw, and The Kid".

There are quite a few cameos from community members and people we work with. Enjoy!

Thank you to all of our friends and partners in Lake County, OR.
