Voyageur’s production team has completed three videos for the Making Archaeology Public Project. This national video series celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. Professional archaeologists in each state have been encouraged to create a video describing what scholars have learned because of this important federal legislation. Voyageur produced the National Introduction, which features our own founding trustee Rebecca A. Hawkins. We also produced videos for Kentucky and New Mexico. Visit the project page to learn more about this grass-roots educational initiative, and to see our contributions.
Lucy Braun: Pioneer Ecologist explores the life and work of E. Lucy Braun, an extraordinary woman of science. Born in Cincinnati, Lucy Braun (1889-1971) was a pioneering ecologist, groundbreaking botanist, and ardent conservationist responsible for the preservation of some of Ohio’s most sensitive ecological sites in the Edge of Appalachia Preserve in Adams County, Ohio. Voyageur and Meg Hanrahan Media just launched the planning phase of this documentary project. Visit our project page for more information.
