Extra footage from our Sandy River film


Our film about the restoration of Oregon’s Sandy River, Unexpected Things Come Together on the River, continues to receive great feedback. It was recently shown at the Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival in California.

When we were shooting this past spring, we got so much great footage that there was no way we could fit it all into a 10 minute film. So, here are some extra clips. Thanks again to all of the wonderful people who appeared in the film and helped make it happen.
