Chesapeake Conservancy and the National Park Service Release Video Series
Find Your Park, Find Your Chesapeake!
Chesapeake Conservancy and the National Park Service release video series
Annapolis, MD – The National Park Service Chesapeake Bay Office and its principal partner Chesapeake Conservancy have released a series of six videos promoting their partnership website Find Your Chesapeake.
Six short videos complement the website’s “Things to Do” activity categories. People from a variety of fields contributed their time to narrate each of the six videos: a Chesapeake photographer, a Baltimore family, a Washington D.C. painter, National Park Service rangers, and an environmental education specialist.
“We hope this film series will inspire people to find their Chesapeake experience and get out and explore the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail,” said National Park Service Superintendent, Chuck Hunt. “We are grateful for our partners and park staff who share these places and stories so families everywhere can enjoy the beauty and history of the Chesapeake.”
Film producer Steve Droter traveled throughout the tidal Chesapeake Bay region, added aerial shots of iconic Chesapeake scenes, and worked with narrators to relate each one’s personal connection to the Chesapeake. The two-minute films inspire viewers to discover their own Chesapeake experience.
Find Your Chesapeake is designed to help people discover authentic experiences related to the Chesapeake’s natural, cultural and recreational resources. The website and film series were inspired by the National Park Foundation’s Find Your Park campaign to celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service (NPS).
Videos are embedded on the appropriate Find Your Chesapeake webpage, and are also on the NPS Chesapeake YouTube channel. A supplementary “sizzle” video introduces the Find Your Chesapeakefilm package.
