I am learning a lot about how environmental action and research is necessary in law and bettering communities. The conflict is that Stone Quarries provide a necessary resource to society and the company is expecting a large return from the quarry operation, however having a quarry in an area with upwards of 100 homes within a mile could be devastation to their community.

It is my last semester here at Purdue and I am so grateful for all that I have learned in my time here. It is always a great feeling when everything seems to come together and as I look to the future, I feel prepared and excited to continue working in environmental filmmaking.
