Although we have already posted our two recently-completed videos earlier this summer, we want to continue to bring attention to these important videos. We are most proud of the 26-minute documentary, “Restoring the Sauk Prairie, A Story of Hope and Healing” completed in May. This video features personal stories from diverse voices sharing their perspectives on the 20-year transformation of the former Badger Army Ammunition Plant into a 7,400-acre green space, much of which is accessible to public recreation. Drop Frame Productions (Prairie du Sac) produced this documentary in collaboration with many Alliance partners.

Also this spring, we completed a second shorter video about the Alliance’s “Badger Apple Corps” project, “Of Connection and Renewal: The Historic Apple Trees of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant.” This 8-minute video offers the story of the “apple trees that survived World War II.” Whereas the farm houses, barns, schools and churches found on the Sauk Prairie were all taken down when the Army took over 80 farmsteads in 1942, the apple trees were spared. The Alliance has mapped and is preserving approximately 150 of these apple trees. The Alliance contracted videographer Anders Gurda to complete this video for us.

If you would like to host a program that features either one of these videos, please contact Charlie at the Alliance: firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d be happy to work with you!
