Over the last ten years students at Colorado College, with the help of State of the Rockies, have been developing a comprehensive approach to large landscape conservation. In the last few years the efforts of almost a decade have culminated in an engaging and innovative strategy. Student researchers have taken to the field with scientific rigor, producing a full length report card, while each year we have been increasingly incorporating and cultivating an adventurous spirit by bringing a cinematic narrative to the perspective. By delving into the landscapes headfirst and taking a camera along the way, the State of the Rockies project has accumulated a unique compilation of footage taken completely by students. This video component has allowed us to meld traditional research methods with cutting edge film making in order to further engage the youth and the increasingly digital culture. It's not only the youth we seek to engage. At State of the Rockies students have been influencing policy makers. In the 2011-2012 year alone students have been engaged with policy makers near and afar. We realize that while in school we may not have the ability to enact policy ourselves, but we have the ability to affect those that do. By presenting both the science behind our research and the empirical evidence showcased by videos and photos we have shown policy makers and leaders the scope of the landscapes at stake. The images truly speak for themselves, as you are about to see. As a youth, we realize that the conservation decisions made today affect our future. Thus we have taken a stand to influence the people that make them while educating our fellow peers in creative ways.
