Whooping Cranes - A Sign of Hope


Waubesa Wetlands: An Invitation to Wonder

I took on my biggest project yet when I began filming in Waubesa Wetlands, a relatively unknown natural area in southwest Wisconsin. My grandpa, Cal Dewitt, has lived on and studied the wetland for over 50 years, and the film will paint a portrait of his love for this beautiful wild place. In Wisconsin alone, nearly half of all wetlands have been destroyed. Through capturing the immense beauty, life, and mystery of this landscape, I hope the film can help people appreciate these areas that have been undervalued for too long.
