COTTONWOOD CANYON

Documentary short, 3 minutes 45 seconds

"The Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy is tremendously grateful to Jennifer Lee for her vision and execution of the project to promote awareness of our campaign to preserveCottonwood Canyon.  She came up with a wonderful idea for a girl scout troop to create awareness by filming the beauty of the canyon and having the girls articulate the need to conserve it's natural open space as part of a wildlife corridor.  She then guided them, and us, through the process of the film's creation - streamlining the process with great efficiency.  The finished product is priceless, and will be the cornerstone of our fundraising campaign going forward." - Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy  2016
