Based on the conference themes, the PLF, BLM, and the Center of the American West designed a college course entitled “Creating New Media for the Old and New West.” This course, taught by the internationally known filmmaker and musician Don Grusin with participation from Public Lands Foundation members and current BLM employees, provided students at the University of Colorado Boulder with a crash course in public lands issues, asked them to select a theme, and to then produce short, informative, videos that explored the changes and challenges that face the public lands and the contemporary West. These fresh perspectives offer glimpses into such controversial and complex topics as Natural Gas Development, Wild Horses, Burning Man, and much more.
