April 13: Kiss the Ground
In honor of Earth Month, the McKinley Film Committee will host a free screening of Kiss the Ground on Wednesday, April 13 at 7:30 PM.
About the film: Narrated by Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is an inspiring and groundbreaking film that reveals the first viable solution to our climate crisis. Kiss the Ground reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.
Featured guest: Liz Miernicki, MS, is with the Wetland Science Program for the Prairie Research Institute. As a wetland soil specialist, she works closely with botanists and GIS specialists to identify and map wetlands across the state. Miernicki currently teaches an intro to soils class at Parkland Community College and will teach a field course at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign this fall.
