TOTAL RUNTIME 60 minutes
One of a 12-film original collection commissioned by Northwest Documentary, The Lost Redwood is the telling of the miraculous rediscovery of a 3rd type of redwood tree long ago extinct in North America.
Faced with worsening floods and a prized salmon population on the brink of extinction, communities along Washington's Chehalis River must decide how to prepare for climate impacts and if a new dam is the answer.
Climate change is on the doorstep of this rural American Watershed. Can diverse communities and cultures across the basin find common ground to solve the crises of increasing floods, droughts and the plight of an iconic species?
