“The Drift: An American Cattle Drive” is a documentary about Wyoming’s Green River Drift, a 100-mile cattle drive, from the foothills of the Green River to the largest forest service grazing allotment in the United States. For more than 100 years, this journey has been a way for local ranching families to raise Wyoming beef, but it hasn’t come without challenges. From grizzly bears to blizzards and real estate development, this film reveals the gritty reality of ranching and what it takes to keep agriculture alive.
After the film, Park County locals, Chuck Walker of the Four C Ranch and Brian Duyck of Beartooth Seed will draw on similarities in agriculture between Park and Sublette Counties and share their experiences with conservation easements.
