Nebraska-based conservation photographer Michael Forsberg started with a simple question, Where does your water come from? More than 10 years and 3 million images later, the Platte Basin Time Lapse project continues to produce stories and inspire undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Nebraska and beyond. Hear how Mike and his partners are building community around a watershed. Plus, hear about Mike’s journey to document the migration path of sandhill cranes, a new project on whooping cranes, and other fun things he loves to photograph in the Great Plains.

There’s no finish line in conservation.
