A free screening of the compelling, award-winning documentary Gasland will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 17, at the Yogo Inn in Lewistown. In the film, family ranchers and farmers in oil and gas fields talk about the real effects of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” on their land and lives.

At the event, you’ll meet John Fenton, Wyoming farmer/rancher, who appears in Gasland. Fenton will introduce the film, relate personal experiences after oil and gas fracking occurred beneath his land, and answer your questions.

Learn “the rest of the story” at this informative evening. Coffee, lemonade and cookies will be provided.  Admission is free and all are welcome. The event is co-sponsored by Northern Plains Resource Council and Madison Aquifer Alliance. Don’t miss it!
