Nature’s Keepers, an inspirational documentary film about Pike County’s 150-year history of land stewardship and those who are continuing that legacy today, will air on public television station WVIA-TV in Scranton January 5 at 7:00 p.m.

“Pike County has a proud history of conservation,” says Sen. Lisa Baker (R-Luzerne), who makes a cameo appearance in the film. “It started with the pioneering efforts of Gifford Pinchot, and continues today through others willing to take an active role in protecting our natural resources.  Nature’s Keepers salutes Governor Pinchot’s legacy and the continuing legacy of those following in his footsteps.”

 “We have a unique conservation history in Pike County and Nature’s Keepers shares the stories of some of the people who are continuing that legacy. We are delighted that WVIA will present the first public television broadcast of the film,” says Nature’s Keepers’ Executive Producer Sean Strub.   Visit the Nature's Keepers website.
