I’m pretty excited that our short documentary about beavers returning to the Milwaukee River became front page news! Thanks to everyone who participated in the doc and to Lee Bergquist of Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for writing the article. View the story here.
Well, after a few months of shooting and editing, the documentary about beavers returning to the Milwaukee River is complete! I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out. Beavers have been returning to Milwaukee’s waterways, but rather than explain why – I’ll let you watch and learn for yourself below.
I happened upon this muskrat, which promptly dove under a thin layer of ice covering the pond. These are native to Milwaukee, and even though I’ve worked at a nature center for three years, I’d never seen one. But I saw four of them today! I suppose they’re especially active, preparing for winter.
I’m working on a documentary about beavers returning to the Milwaukee River. Here are a few preliminary sketches for the title art. Any graphic or text design opinions/suggestions/critique are welcome!

Here is a little teaser footage I shot this morning for a project I’m working on. Beavers have gradually returned to the Milwaukee River and this rehabilitated animal was released in the river this morning. By all accounts, Chip seems to be doing very well in her new natural river island habitat.
