Reflections of The Trask is the first video in a series about the North Coast watersheds in Oregon. Ethan Barrow, co-owner of Adventures Across Oregon, takes us on a thoughtful journey to explain how he connects with this scenic, wild river.

Filmmaker Katelyn Black teams up with the North Coast State Forrest Coalition to develop a series of vignettes that highlight the iconic rivers and watersheds of Oregon’s north coast through the immensely varied ways that locals interact with this region. The NCSF coalition is well-connected to Oregonians who are deeply invested in various north coast watersheds for their livelihoods and unique ways of life. By identifying those interests and enterprises that are unique to each individual watershed, we will bring to light concerns that affect all of the north coast, its people, and its forests. Audience members who may know only certain rivers or watersheds will be excited to witness the interconnectedness of this temperate rainforest ecoregion. People who only interact with the region through a single lens (fishing, hiking, or logging) will be compelled to consider the myriad ways in which the north coast supports the Oregon way(s) of life. This film series would capture that work and go beyond it towards a broader celebration of these watersheds, their history, and their potential.
