Bridge the Gap
- as seen by -Natalie Cash and Jeff Morey
It’s a story you could imagine telling at a cocktail party–restoring the wooden promenade of the Brooklyn Bridge with sustainably harvested timber from a long-term Wildlife Conservation Society field site.
It’s just so unconventional, so innovative, so big, that when we were approached to make a film about this project, we knew had to be a part of it. To transform this iconic bridge into a global showcase for conservation, just the possibility of it creates a sense of pride on so many levels, as New Yorkers, as WCS staffers, as people who regularly commute across the Brooklyn Bridge.
We look at the bridge now in a whole new way, with a new sense of possibility.
