Finding Their Way

A couple in Pennsylvania had only eleven days to save their favorite park from gas drilling—and they succeeded. Watch their story.

Finding Their Way

Jen Slotterback was hiking in her favorite park when she found signs of surveying for gas drilling, or fracking. She went home and told her husband Jim, and although the two had never been actively involved in the issue of gas drilling, they immediately began a campaign to save the park. The board that controlled the park was set to vote on whether to drill in the park in 11 days. The story of the Slotterbacks' journey of those 11 days is the subject of this film.
