Wyoming Rising invites you to view the film series “My Wild Land” This series is about Wyoming ranchers and their commitment to the ranching lifestyle, preserving open space, and stewarding lands for wildlife and cattle. In addition to a diverse group of ranchers, the films showcase Wyoming’s vast open spaces through vivid cinematography in all seasons.
The three-part series, “My Wild Land,” features ranches from across Wyoming: the Terry Creek Ranch near Laramie, the Bischoff Ranch near Lovell and the Hellyer family ranch near Lander. The series, presented by Muley Fanatic Foundation with support from the outdoor equipment company Maven and produced by the Wyoming Migration Initiative (WMI) at the University of Wyoming, was launched in response to the rapid residential growth of Western states in recent years and subsequent loss of wildlife habitat.
Each film shares the unique perspective of the landowners; their relationship to the land; and the challenges they’ve faced while maintaining cattle operations and promoting wildlife habitat.
This series of films was shown around Wyoming to standing-room-only crowds. It is now free to the public for online viewing. ENJOY !
