Jeremy Monroe

My work serves to remind people of the vibrance, diversity, and profound importance of rivers, lakes, and wetlands. From a background in aquatic ecology, I’ve found filmmaking as one of the most expressive ways to capture the beauty of these ecosystems. With a talented group of visual artists and communicators, I seek out stories that convey the beauty and value of freshwater life, and we work to make those stories as compelling as they can be. I direct the nonprofit organization, Freshwaters Illustrated, based in Corvallis, Oregon. 

As the core filmmaking team of Freshwaters Illustrated, our aim is to seek and share compelling stories that capture the wonder of freshwater ecosystems and the passion of those who work to take care of them.
