Heron Cove

Heron Cove

John Huston overcame a serious childhood illness that lasted several years to become a Hollywood legend as an actor, screenwriter and director; he won an Oscar directing The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and somehow made time to be involved with documentary films. Confirming his love of nature and the outdoors, he narrated this classic documentary, which takes us to Heron Cove, Washington, to explore the ecology of the land between oceans and fresh waters - the estuary. Estuaries we discover are a dramatic part of the environment, and no other wetland has such diversity of life. We see trumpeter swans, which are the world's largest waterfowl; we visit Puget Sound, an estuary that consists of four interconnected basins; here salt water from the ocean is mixed with fresh water draining from the surrounding watershed. Produced by Heron Cove Productions. 86/08DE IJSCA 60 min.
