About this event
The School of Natural Resources is hosting Mike Forsberg and Pete Stegen for a documentary night featuring “Follow the Water” from 7 to 9 p.m. Jan. 31 at Hardin Hall Auditorium, 3310 Holdrege St. The event is free and open to the public, and parking will be provided in Hardin Hall parking lot. The documentary film, based partially on the Platte River Timelapse Project and produced by NET Television, tells the story of the journey of one droplet of water through the Platte River Basin. Forsberg, a conservation photographer and an associate professor of practice at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Pete Stegen, a filmmaker, journeyed for 55 days through the watershed by bike, backpack and canoe gathering footage with their iPhones. Forsberg and Stegen immersed themselves in the Platte Basin Watershed — hiking, biking and canoeing from the Wind River Range in Wyoming to the place where the Platte flows into the Missouri, and along the way, they met with dedicated conservationists and filmed their stories, while exploring the watershed and building connections between people, the environment and the land itself. A panel discussion will follow the viewing so the audience can explore the themes of the film with Forsberg and Stegen. “We hope this film makes people think about how precious water is and where your water comes from, know that rivers are our lifelines, and realize watersheds are communities to which we all belong. With that comes a lot of responsibility,” Forsberg said. ### The documentary movie night could not happen without NET, which has provided access to the film for a public showing.
