Elam Stoltzfus of Live Oak Production Group has been filming in Rookery Bay Research Reserve for more than 20 years. In his talk, he will share clips from his upcoming, full-length documentary film about the reserve and its 40th anniversary.

The 2018-19 lecture series will focus on the history of the Rookery Bay area and the establishment of the Research Reserve. Lectures by staff and volunteers will describe 3,000 years of use of the estuary, the grassroots movement to save the bay, fisheries research, the establishment of the Research Reserve and Environmental Learning Center, as well as some of the more recent accomplishments and notable events in the Reserve's timeline.
