The Power of the River Documentary
This documentary by Daniel Larson of ComVideo Productions takes viewers on a historical journey that begins with the melting of the last glacier and ends with a group of energetic kayakers transiting the De Pere Lock. The Upper Fox River is part of a 12,000-year-old route that leads to the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico. The Lower Fox River is a wonderful 39 mile stretch of river for boaters and fishermen, and electrical power source for homes and industry, 17 locks and a magnet for fish and wildlife. A recently completed one-billion-dollar cleanup has done much to return this treasured resource closer to its former splendor.
The Power of the River was produced over a six-year period and documents the history of the Lower Fox River. Passionate cultural and historical experts were interviewed and their stories were woven into a visual tapestry that bring the Lower Fox River to life. The film runs 56 minutes.
Continuous viewing of The Power of the River will be held inside the Nature Center building from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM during our Focus on the Fox event. No registration or fee is required.
