Waters Ecology Film Project

In recent years, The Waters Ecology Film Project documented much of the ecology program. We wish to thank the many, many people have contributed their time, skills, and creative talent…

Of course, we thank Pete Leki for sharing the beautiful world of ecology through song, knowledge, stewardship work, and exploring nature at the lake, river, forest, and garden with generations of Waters school students and community.

And we thank all the parent and community volunteers and wonderful Waters teachers and staff who are part of the ecology program, on field trips, sharing their own love and knowledge of nature, and all the many ways that make this community effort.

Special gratitude to all the donors and fundraisers! Your understanding, acknowledgment, time, and support is beautiful. Thank you!
