Toft documentary wins another award for ETP-NEW
Educational Television Productions of Northeast Wisconsin’s (ETP-NEW), located on the UW-Green Bay campus, is proud to announce that its latest documentary has been honored with a Telly Award. Robert Howe and Gary Fewless of the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity are among those featured in interviews in the “Emma Toft: One with Nature” documentary. The program was a silver winner in the 35th Annual Telly Awards, which attracted 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries. The documentary highlights Emma Toft, described as Wisconsin’s First Lady of Conservation, and tells how she and her family saved one of the most pristine areas of Wisconsin from development. Her work helped Door County’s Toft Point, near Baileys Harbor, remain a haven for wildflowers, birds, animals and white pine to this day under the management of UW-Green Bay. “The positive feedback we have received from people all over Wisconsin about our documentary has been truly overwhelming,” said Dean Leisgang, documentary producer. “Now, to learn that our work has been honored on a national stage is a true source of pride for all involved.” For the full news release and specifics on the award.
