The Platte River is a major watershed in the heart of the Great Plains. The Platte waters crops and cattle, hosts resident and migrant wildlife, supplies thirsty cities, fuels power generators, and delights fishermen and boaters.
These are stories of our most precious resource: water
Where does your water come from?
50+ cameras take photographs every daylight hour of every day.
These photographs help us see a watershed through time.
1,000,000 time-lapse images and counting.
We all live in a watershed, a region defined by water. This unifies us more than we may realize. This series, a collaboration between Platte Basin Timelapse and NET Radio’s Humanities Desk, looks closely at how water shapes our landscapes and lives on the Great Plains through the voices of people who live here.
