“The Spawn” wins first runner up at 2015 RVA Environmental Film Festival
March 4, 2015
VCU alumna Melissa Lesh has filmed yet another beautiful, award-winning documentary. Produced by VCU Life Sciences’ Outreach Education Coordinator Anne Wright for the Science in the Park website, and narrated by former James River Park Manager Ralph White, the film documents the plight and management of blueback herring and American shad in the James River. The film features interviews with Michael Odom, Hatchery Manager of the Harrison Lake National Fish Hatchery, and Alan Weaver, Fish Passage Coordinator for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. The VCU Rice Rivers Center would like to thank our partners at Harrison Lake and VDGIF for their contributions to this film. We also congratulate Ms. Lesh and Ms. Wright, on this well-deserved recognition.
