Support The Project

You can help create connection

Each and every one of us is intertwined with the ecosystem in which we live.

It’s where we breathe in the air, set up our gardens, take walks among plants and animals, and yes, of course, drink the water.

But sometimes, it’s difficult to see that connection.

Why? Because out of sight, out of mind.

We are changing that.

Watershed Sentinels sparks curiosity, stokes enthusiasm and rebuilds the understanding the health and needs of our watersheds – the very source of our drinking water.

Through images, video, and beautifully crafted resources, viewers meet (sometimes for the first time) the residents with whom we share space, and who tell us exactly what’s going on in our ecosystem as a whole.

Watershed Sentinels strengthens connections. And that’s where YOU come in.

Watershed Sentinels may be based on the Oregon coast, but its message and tools are applicable to any community, anywhere. Through your support of this project, you help create connection between people and nature in your own community, too.

Your financial support goes straight into creating the visual stories, and getting them out into the world.

This project has big goals, and your support is a huge component in being able to achieve those goals.

Expenses Include

Field Work

Expenses include gas, food, permits, fees, lodging, hiring guides or assistants, and more.

Specialized Equipment

From aerial footage to underwater images, from time-lapse to camera traps, specialized techniques require specialized (and sometimes customized) gear.

Presentation Packages

Print and digital costs for creating customized presentation packages for scientists, teachers, community leaders, and nonprofit groups to host educational talks or programs.

Website

This ever-evolving immersive platform will seamlessly blend animated maps and timelines, prose and articles, photography, video and sound to appeal to visitors of all learning styles. The technology and design expertise to provide this multi-sensory experience of places, people and wildlife can add up.

Exhibits

The portraits will come together into cohesive exhibit that can be shown in places of interest including galleries, visitor centers, universities, airports and other key locations.
