Driftless Documentary

Go on a wild ride of adventure above, on, and below the amazing Driftless Region through a new film of exploration. The Driftless Area Wetlands Centre in Marquette will host screenings of the 1-hour documentary film, “Decoding the Driftless,” on Saturday, March 30th. There will be two showings at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., with follow-up Q & A sessions with filmmaker, George Howe. This will serve as the spring fundraiser to help support Driftless Area Wetlands Centre programs and free will donations will be accepted. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Marquette Driftless Area. Seats are limited and advanced registration is required by calling 563-873-3537 or emailing driftlessareawetlandcentreia@gmail.com.

"Decoding the Driftless” is the sequel to the popular Emmy award winning "Mysteries of the Driftless". Soar over ancient, rugged bluffs, skim the surface of primordial rivers, venture deep underground to secret worlds, marvel at sacred archeological treasures, hang perilously over massive rock cliffs, and travel across time itself to explore and decipher ancient clues of the unglaciated Driftless Region landscape, with its captivating scenic beauty.

I believe the real and personal stories, fascinating natural phenomena, and surprising natural history presented in this film, are going to profoundly touch the lives of many, many people, and inspire them to connect with nature,” said George Howe, one of the producers and writers for the film and a co-founder of Sustainable Driftless. “When people connect with and enjoy nature, many good things happen. We are truly part of the natural world, and it’s important for people to know about the land where they live and develop a good sense of place.”
