"Crystal Flowers"

Dennis Shultz spent three years documenting the Ducktrap River and its surrounding land, taking more than 1,000 photographs each season. The Ducktrap teemed with wild Atlantic salmon until the introduction of fishing and urban sprawl decimated the population. In June 1993, a diverse group of organizations met to discuss the future of the Ducktrap watershed and its salmon population. After developing a geographical information system (GIS) of the area, the organizations created a collaboration known as the Ducktrap Coalition.
