AS CONSERVATION STORYTELLERS, our goal IS TO
Inspire care for our land and water and connect our neighbors up and downstream — all through the power of story.
Follow THE WATER
A 900 hundred-mile journey through the heart of North America.
Water connects everything, from people to wildlife to landscapes. It is constantly moving and shaping the land around us.
Through increased urbanization, we’re becoming disconnected from our land and water.
What if we could use the power of photography and story to see our water in motion? What if we could leverage those images to build community and grow understanding of our watersheds?
This is what inspires us. This is our aim. Join us on the journey.
Who WE ARE
Platte Basin Timelapse is a project that builds community around our watershed.
We are a team of multi-talented professionals who tell stories, create films, give presentations, host events, teach classes and conduct research.
We tell stories because our connection to the land is not simply transactional — it’s relational.
Conservation stories are people stories. We believe in building community around our shared resources.
Through university classes and other educational efforts, we teach people about our natural world and train the next generation of storytellers.
Art AND SCIENCE
We partner with many types of organizations and individuals to tell the stories of their work and create new ways to engage the public in scientific research. If you care about conservation, we’d love to discuss working together.
Funders & PARTNERS
Our work is made possible through the generous support and partnerships of a diversity of organizations and individuals. We are proudly located within the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
