Why should I care about a watershed?
This is, admittedly, probably not a question you have asked yourself recently. We can't blame you. We tend to take our water for granted -- whether the snow on a ski trip to fishing trips to the lake in Summer to the irrigation systems that provide for bountiful produce.
The thing is, water is really, really important. (We all know that.) For many parts of the country, water management is just as important. (We don't think as much about that part.) That is what this new series -- Watershed
, from NET Nebraska
-- is here to teach us.
"Watershed" is an immersive video series that presents the beauty and diversity of American watersheds through the stories of people connected across the 500+ miles of the Platte River watershed. Fed by the Rocky Mountain snowpack and Great Plains aquifer, the Platte River watershed stretches across three states to join the Missouri River and flow on to the Gulf of Mexico.
Because the series is shot in 8K 360-degree video, you don't just see these important stops along the watershed, you feel truly immersed in the experience. So you begin to understand how connected the people in the Great Plains are to the top of the Rockies.
