In Celebration of Open Space
Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park pursues collaborative solutions to critical environmental problems through discovery and learning. After volunteers spent time outside walking, observing, and recording data, we asked, what does open space mean to you?
A Community Conservation Effort
What started as a small group of conservationists in the early ’70s grows into a massive movement that changed the entire course of a community. Greenspace Inc. forms community partnerships and carries the torch of preservation on its way to becoming Kentucky's First Urban Trail Town.
If We Take Care of the Land and Water, It Takes Care of Us
A local Colorado family and their community keep a historic tradition of equitable distribution of water. They share how maintaining that practice into modern times sustains the spirit of community and the strength of generational farms and ranches.
The Return explores hidden enclaves of wilderness where tiny smolts shimmer beneath the water's surface. Their future is now in our hands.
Conservation isn't always the common thread between the tribes, ranchers, and government. This film shows how water can bring opposing interests towards finding a Common Ground.
One part family adventure, one part environmental film, 24 Leeches is a tribute to a father's best friend and adventure partner, his 10-year-old son. This film documents a family canoe adventure to the Slate Islands of Ontario, Canada and more importantly a way of life.
A Living River
Despite its polluted reputation, the Hudson River is teeming with life. From the tiny Glass Eels to the massive 14 foot long Atlantic Sturgeon, a vital web of life defies decades of oppression. Organizations like Riverkeeper and New York's Department of Environmental Conservation use lessons learned from its past as a bustling commercial fishery to its present as an ecosystem in recovery in order to protect its future.
Resilience is in Our Nature
A snapshot of the Portland, Oregon community during the COVID-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter uprising, Resilience Is In Our Nature captures resilience that can be found within us and around us. Whether it’s putting a mask on and enjoying outside, learning how to thrive and grow in quarantine, maintaining balance physically and mentally in nature, or a small business adapting and staying afloat – this film centers the fabric of what makes Oregon's neighborhoods, cities, and state a special place to live.
