From the Alberta oil sands to the Gulf Coast of Texas, hear about the world's first modern journey across private property, which trespassed over the Great Plains to answer the question: What is our personal responsibility as stewards of the land?
Ken Ilgunas walked 1,700 miles across North America, following the proposed route of the Keystone XL pipeline, from Hardisty, Alberta, to the Gulf Coast of Texas. On his journey Ken encountered stampedes of cows, charging moose and climate change deniers. Learn about Ken's adventure, the world's first modern journey across private property, on which he trespassed over one of the most ignored, yet beautiful, regions of our continent — the Great Plains. He'll talk about the people of the heartland, the right to roam and the stories that form the basis of his book, "Trespassing across America."
