Call of the Scenic River film

Call of the Scenic River: An Ohio Journey is the story of Ohio?s most natural waterways, told by those who appreciate their splendor, and work to protect and preserve them for future generations. Although few people realize that Ohio was the first state to declare a Scenic Rivers Program in March of 1968, Ohio's program continues to lead river conservation because of its respect of private property, its commitment to designating the most ecologically intact systems, and its popular volunteer opportunities.

Released on the 40th anniversary year of the Clean Water Act, this film follows Ohio filmmaker Tom Mayor?s journey as he experiences Ohio?s Scenic Rivers, and learns first-hand about non-point-source pollution, and the ecological and economic impacts of water quality. Filmed by veteran Ohio cinematographers, Mike King and Adam White, with underwater footage by Tom Mayor, the film captures the stunning and natural beauty of the rivers, while featuring the historical perspective of water quality and the modern conditions that affect these watershed eco-systems.

Special showing sponsored by the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
