Water Battles by Martin Figueroa
Static Preview

In the semi-arid San Joaquin Valley of California, UC Merced student Martin Figueroa has been the driving force in a campus movement to reduce water use and improve energy efficiency. In 2011, Figueroa recruited more than 600 students in the newest University of California campus to participate in the "UC Merced Water Battle" — a month-long water saving competition between residence halls. To track water usage Figueroa utilized real-time water monitoring technology and enlisted engineering students to help track the data. During the contest participating students reduced their water use by 14 percent, saving 89,000 gallons of water. Figueroa is now reaching out to other UC campuses and asking them to hold their own "Water Battles."

Saving Scotchman Peaks by Jacob Glass
Static Preview

Straddling the Idaho-Montana border, the 88,000-acre Scotchman Peaks Roadless Area is one of the largest remaining wild areas in the region. Inspired by the "soaring proud pines, migratory moose herds, and pristine air" of the region, Jacob Glass produced En Plein Air, a film that documents the efforts of Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness, a grassroots group formed in 2005 to get federal wilderness protection for the region. The documentary, by Glass's film company Wildman Pictures, focuses on two painters who use their artwork to convey their appreciation for the mountains. En Plein Air received nationwide media attention and dramatically increased Friends of Scotchman Peaks' membership. The surge of public support for the wilderness designation led to endorsements from many area chambers of commerce and Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer.
