The School of Natural Resources is hosting Mike Forsberg and Pete Stegen for a documentary night featuring “Follow the Water.” 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.

A panel discussion will follow the viewing so the audience can explore the themes of the film with Forsberg and Stegen.

Lesiak hopes people will get caught up in the story, appreciating one of Nebraska’s great natural resources as seen through the eyes of two conservationists, passionate about never taking the water for granted.
