Thank you to all who joined NRCM and the Colby College Environmental Studies Program for an evening with author Ken Ilgunas as he spoke about his book, Trespassing across America: One Man’s Epic, Never-Done-Before (and sort of Illegal) Hike along the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Ken Ilgunas walked nearly 2,000 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. Guests learned 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 talked about the people of the heartland, the right to roam, and the stories that form the basis of his book, Trespassing across America.
NRCM was pleased to co-sponsor this event.
