Canopy Connections wins a NW Emmy
BLUE RIVER: “Canopy Connections,” a documentary filmed at the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest, has won a Northwest Regional Emmy award, in the category of Best Editing-Photography. It was created by students Megan Toth and Kelly Sky of the University of Oregon’s Environmental Studies Program (ENVS),
The film details the experiences of the Canopy Connections Environmental Leadership Program team, which asked select ENVS undergraduate students to teach middle-schoolers about forest biology. The middle-school students were given an opportunity to climb into the canopy and explore the understory to learn about useful plants, and cameras followed students as they climbed, with beautiful cutaways to their reactions to the new perspective on ecology.
