Niagara Escarpment Documentaries to be Shown at The Clearing, Crossroads, and DCA

The Niagara Escarpment Resource Network (NERN), with event underwriter Trout Springs Winery and several regional organizations, will be showing two documentary films produced in Wisconsin featuring the Niagara Escarpment.

The Great Ledge was created by De Pere resident Dan Larson, who spent four years filming the people and places along Wisconsin’s Niagara escarpment. This 40-minute film focuses on escarpment stories relating to the geology, groundwater, and flora and fauna.

The premiere showing of The Great Ledge will take place at the De Pere Cinema on April 26 from 6:30-8 pm and is a fundraiser for NERN’s Niagara Escarpment School Curriculum Project. Tickets are $10 each and can be ordered online at Two additional free showings will be offered in Door County on April 29 at The Clearing from 1:30-3 pm and at Crossroads at Big Creek from 7-8:30 pm.

Escarpment was produced over many years by Door County native Roger Kuhns. His documentary focuses on the natural history of Eastern Wisconsin and the Niagara escarpment region of the Great Lakes. Escarpment will be shown exclusively on April 22 at the Door Community Auditorium from 6:30-8:30 pm. Admission is free.

All showings will include an introduction and comments from the filmmakers and will follow with a Q&A session. For more information visit or visit Earth Week Door County on Facebook.
